I told many submitters of images that the LPOD of two days ago was the only coverage of the occulation of Venus that would appear here. But then Pavel sent these wonderful sequences and I buckled again. Such events may tell us something about Venus or the limb of the Moon, but from my perspective they are simply wonderful capturing of a scene that I was on the wrong side of the Earth to see.
