Photographer's Note

I was very interested with this rare astronomical phenomenon, so I captured this picture with ordinary digital camera, so it's not the best quality. But, the explanation is important. You can see the planet and lunar occultation in this photo, Moon on the right, Venus in the Moon's left side, and Jupiter at top of them. This was happened tonight, and it's a true spectacle to see, with Moon covering Venus, and after a while Venus rise at the other side of Moon. If you live at the Northern hemisphere, and if you were lucky with the weather, you could enjoy in the same scenery like I was.
