A Perfect Triangle between Moon, Pleiades and Venus


| | | |

The photo shows a Crescent Moon with a visible earthshine immersed by the Hyades star cluster, and forming an almost perfect triangle of about 9 degrees, which seems to be aligned with Pleiades star cluster at right, and below, the bright planet Venus. In the foreground, the water of Alqueva lake is reflecting the beautiful colors from nautical twilight. The image was captured in Campinho village, near the headquarter of Dark Sky Alqueva Reserve.

Em primeiro plano, a água do lago do Alqueva reflecte as lindas cores do crepúsculo náutico. A imagem foi captada na aldeia de Campinho, perto da sede da Reserva Dark Sky Alqueva.
