A rare planetary event took place yesterday, when the planet Venus was eclipsed by the crescent moon. It's something that can only happen when the moon and Venus are in the right alignment and , though it was not visible from North America, people from India to North Africa and the Philippines could watch this " planetary occultation" in the twilight sky. Now through the magic of the internet, you can watch it too. Enjoy.
Hat Tip to Mail Online where I found the picture above plus more photos and a detailed explanation of the event.
