The almost real 'Crack of Dawn': at least to my eyes.
This is as I saw from the aircraft window glass and my smart phone. Waning Moon, Venus and Jupiter, some where over Mosul, Iraq. As much as I missed my real camera, my eyes saw and my phone captured some celestial views that I may not catch again.
Flying East to West, leaving behind the Moon and planets at crack of dawn, into the golden hour and flying over tufts of clouds over *Zagros Mountain Range for about an hour was breathtaking time spent. Eyes will not forget for long what they saw.
It made for hundreds of clicks of those views. Will love to share here, but slow and steady.

*I hope my little knowledge of its name is right.
