From Live Science: “Astrophotographer Niccolò Bonfadini took this stunning picture in the Finnish Lapland in the winter of 2011. With the sun rising behind the photographer, the Belt of Venus is the pinkish streak caused by the atmosphere reflecting light from the setting or rising sun — giving the reddish hue.”
Astrophotographer is pretty much the the best job title I’ve ever heard.
I know I’m supposed to be looking at the Belt of Venus and everything, but holy crap, those show-pillar things are trees!
Photo of the Day: People arrive at the “Diner en blanc” (Dinner in White) event outside the ArtScience Museum at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
A total of 888 people, dressed head to toe in white and bringing with them white tablecloths, glassware and other finery, gathered at the promenade near the museum on Thursday night for an impromptu open-air dinner, organizers said.
Participants at the event, the first in Asia, were told of the venue via social media sites and the Internet, then rushed to assemble at the venue. ( REUTERS/Tim Chong)
