Random Picture #1

Today I will post this beautiful picture that I found on NASA site. It is not very related to astronomy (there is Venus and the Moon in the sky, but nothing more than that). Anyway, I never said this blog would be about astronomy only. I also plan on posting some news and articles about technology, and other nice pictures.


Explanation: Sometimes a morning sky can be a combination of serene and surreal. Such a sky perhaps existed before sunrise this past Sunday as viewed from a snowy slope in eastern Switzerland. Quiet clouds blanket the above scene, lit from beneath by lights from the village of TrĂ¼bbach. A snow covered mountain, Mittlerspitz, poses dramatically on the upper left, hovering over the small town of Balzers, Liechtenstein far below. Peaks from the Alps can be seen across the far right, just below the freshly rising Sun. Visible on the upper right are the crescent Moon and the bright planet Venus. Venus will remain in the morning sky all month, although it will likely not be found in such a photogenic setting.

  9. Gorgeous image. It's amazing the changes in prominence that exist in the Alps to be able to capture such photos. I've got quite an interest in getting into astrophotography and so will be following your blog!
