Da Vinci Glow Shines on a Crescent Moon in Close Conjunction with Planet Jupiter

| | | |

Captured on March 14th, 2024 the image reveals a close conjunction between Planet Jupiter and a Crescent Moon. While Jupiter revealed on this 300mm portrait its main 4 galilean moons, on the Crescent Moon is shiningly visible the Da Vinci Glow. Described and drawn for the first time by Leonardo Da Vinci about 500 years ago on his book Codex Leicester, Leonardo da Vinci explained the phenomenon known as Earthshine in the early 16th century, when he realised that both Earth and the Moon reflect sunlight at the same time. Light is reflected from the Earth to the Moon and back to the Earth as earthshine. The image was captured in one of the landscape fields from Dark Sky® Alqueva region, in Portugal.

PT: Captada a 14 de Março de 2024, a imagem revela uma estreita conjunção entre o planeta Júpiter e uma Lua Crescente. Enquanto Júpiter revela neste retrato de 300mm as suas 4 principais luas galileanas, na Lua Crescente é possível distinguir claramente o chamado “Brilho de Da Vinci”. Descrito e desenhado pela primeira vez por Leonardo Da Vinci há cerca de 500 anos em seu livro Codex Leicester, Leonardo da Vinci explicou o fenómeno conhecido como Earthshine (Da Vinci Glow) no início do século XVI, quando percebeu que tanto a Terra quanto a Lua refletem a luz solar ao mesmo tempo. A luz é refletida da Terra para a Lua e de volta para a Terra como Earthshine. A imagem foi captada numa das paisagens do Dark Sky® Alqueva, em Portugal.
