Description
Today from France, the Moon was occulting Venus. Unfortunately I wasn't able to see the moments of the emmersion and imersion of Venus because of clouds. But they gave me some nice pictures, filling the blue sky with white patches. With the naked eyes, the show was really impressive: a pale crescent Moon with a bright dot (visible as a Quarter in the instrument). Many other pictures visible in this gallery.
