Tomorrow's Bridge, Yesterday's Moon
image by Miguel Claro, Lisbon, Portugal
LPOD received a number of views of the nice conjunction of Jupiter with the crescent Moon (only 1% of the disc iluminated by the Sun, and the rest by Earthshine). This was the most dramatic image because of the burnt umber clouds, the golden city lights and the bridge crossing over both. The image was taken from Almada, facing Lisbon and the 25 April Bridge.
