Explanation: On September 8, brilliant planet Venus appearing as the evening star stood near a slender, crescent Moon at sunset. The close celestial pairing or conjunction was a scene enjoyed by skygazers around the world. But from some locations in South America, the Moon actually passed in front of Venus in a lunar occultation. Captured near Las Cañas, Uruguay, this two frame mosaic telescopic view shows the Moon and Venus before and after the occultation. The silvery evening star appears at right just before it winked out behind the dark lunar limb, still in bright twilight skies.

Unfortunately, that reminds me of 57 states.
I saw that on Sept.8th.I went out to sit on the porch with a glass of wine.It was so pretty I called my husband out.It was also The Blessed Mother’s Birthday.
Somebody once told me that the Islamic flag with the crescent and star represents the New Moon with a spaceship in front of it. Kinda plausible, if you stop and think about it. Who else besides evil, remote-controlling aliens would want to mess with Humanity as badly as Islam does? Women are considered lower than camels. Children are fair game. Violent self-destruction is considered honorable as long as you can take out infidels. They love death more than we love our children. In my opinion, that’s Satan’s army right there.
The Muslims will have orgasms.
Wow, that is far out.
