The last night at GSSP, right after sunset, we were rewarded with a beautiful view of a 1 day old Moon setting next to the impressive Mount Shasta. The Venus Belt (the grayish area bewteen the pinkish and bluish sky) is clearly visible, as if the Moon was resting right on it.

Get a poster, t-shirt, mug, mousepad... with this image!

Very nice picture, looking a bit like this painting on old arabian tales and myth... without the lights! On top of that it's the first time I heard about the " Venus belt" .Regards J.L.
