Image Details:

On an unusually clear evening, not long after sundown, it was striking to see the beautiful "stairway in the heavens" which appeared over Vijlen, Netherlands. Jupiter, Saturn, the young Moon, and Venus all evenly spaced, arcing over the town of Vijlen. As you can see, it was truly "Pretty as a picture." Thank you to EarthSky for all your wonderful work and services, which are much appreciated!
