Kuu ja Venus - 3.12.2016 at 16.30 - 3.12.2016 at 16.45 Laitila Observation number 58669

Visibility V / V

We were coming from emptying my birthplace as I browsed the pages of Spaceweather on the way back. Ah damn, that encounter between the Moon and Venus is still visible today.

All you have to do is get home.

A man and I from Eura admired that phenomenon — incredibly beautiful!

The throttle was not allowed to burn, the road was really slippery.

It probably wasn’t hard to deduce what happened when we arrived at the backyard.

The host roughly kicked the Persian that "went now to photograph that great encounter" - he empties the car.

So I rushed recklessly (sorry Raija: D, they are my footprint in the sun yard!) Through the neighbor's yard, ending up in mailboxes, where I had time to describe the encounter.

It was beautiful and the stormy, surging and confused emotions leveled off. The drop in blood pressure was downright noticeable.

Mother Nature is miraculous — it heals even the most severe mental wounds.

I will never even consider stopping filming again !!

(... which I have done once before) but now the spark has ignited to continue this great hobby again. That spark can still grow into a big rumble, but it’s already a different story.
