Venus disappearing behind the Moon
Today has been overcast for most of the day, but around 4 o'clock it started to clear a little, and I could witness Venus disappearing behind the Moon. It was a wonderful sight to see this amazingly bright little sphere of light vanish behind something that is almost invisible, the darker part of the crescent Moon. I used my 85mm Zeiss spotting scope, equipped with the zoom eyepiece for visual observation. I also shot some images right before Venus disappeared with the Coolpix 4500. Enjoy the views, and I hope it will still be clear when Venus reappears!

Hoi Math,

Gefeliciteerd met dit mooie plaatje!
Blijkbaar was het weer in Limburg beter dan in Eindhoven. Wij hebben hier rond 4 uur mogen genieten van een dubbele bedekking. Zowel de Maan als Venus waren bedekt door een dik pak wolken.

Vriendelijke groeten,
