DescriptionThe picture shows Venus and the Moon a few minutes before she vanished behind the Moon. We (Werner Möhler, Timm Klose, Roman Prager and Dietmar Sellner) were very lucky to see it because we found out only a day before that is was visible in Namibia/Africa. As the sky was perfectly clear the occultation was great to see. Dietmar and Timm showed it to a school class on a 24" Dobson while Werner and Roman took pictures using the IAS 20" and 18" telescopes.
