Caption: Lunar occultation of Venus, seen over sunset clouds across water. The crescent Moon is at top centre, with the planet Venus just above it. An occultation is when one astronomical body (here, the Moon) passes in front of and occults another (here, Venus). Photographed from Fray Bentos, a Uruguayan city on the River Uruguay, on 8 September 2013.
