Photo of the Moon, Venus and Earthshine

Taken with Olympus E-500 digital camera

Here is a picture of phenomenon that I have not seen often. The moon was a thin crescent and Earth reflected light on the moon. It’s called planetshine and Earthshine when the earth lights the moon.
You can also see Venus below the Moon.
