A dreamy trip to Agrigento, Sicily, Italy, for the occultation of Venus, as well as for visiting the majestic Valley of the Temples, the greatest complex of ancient Greek temples in the world. In this photo you see the most brilliant of them, the 2500 year old temple of Concordia together with the Moon, Venus and Jupiter. And the occultation was marvelously seen, as the weather was completely clear!
