    The Last Days of Venus as the Evening Star

    That's not a young crescent Moon poised above the hills along the western horizon at sunset. It's Venus in a crescent phase. About 54 million kilometers away and less than 20 percent illuminated, it was captured by telescope and camera on September 30 near Bacau, Romania. The bright celestial beacon is now languishing in the evening twilight, its days as the Evening Star in 2018 coming to a close. But it also grows larger in apparent size and becomes an ever thinner crescent in telescopic views.

    Gibbous Moon beyond Swedish Mountain

    This is a gibbous Moon. More Earthlings are familiar with a full moon, when the entire face of Luna is lit by the Sun, and a crescent moon, when only a sliver of the Moon's face is lit. When more than half of the Moon is illuminated, though, but still short of full illumination, the phase is called gibbous. Rarely seen in television and movies, gibbous moons are quite common in the actual night sky.

    Foggy Small Town, by Duowen Chen

    "This photo was captured at noon, on 25 December 2013, from the castle which is located on the edge of the small town. It is the perfect viewpoint for the panorama of the almost-intact historical town. The fog and mist suffused and gave the town a sense of mystery." Taken at Český Krumlov, South Bohemian, Czech Republic.

    China, the Wild and Remote bits

    "It was a muggy day, the sort where you feel your t-shirt sticking to you before you even realize it. We hired some local guides, who then hired some even more local guides to help show the way to the spire we wanted to ascend. Boy was it grueling! Jagged rocks, thorny bushes, all-fours most of the way. Sometimes the only thing to hold onto was a thorn bush or a glassy-evil-jaded rock. At the top, I looked down to see all kinds of grisly lacerations... but gathered my wits to get this photo!"

    Mauna Kea Magic

    The Big Island of Hawaii showed me the darkest night sky I've ever seen, especially at nearly 14,000 feet in elevation, near the summit of Mauna Kea. While the naked eye can only see so much, I was blown away by all the detail that the camera was able to pick up such as the airglow, Kilauea Caldera glowing through the fog, and even some zodiacal light looming behind the near setting moon. This panorama is consisted of 22 vertical images at 24mm.

    Rainbow in the Himalayas

    We all were reluctant to rush back down to rainy Khumbu valley after experiencing a stunning sunrise behind the Everest from a hill-top in freezing cold. So, we took more stops than usual on our way back and were gifted by this rare optical phenomena around Nuptse summit- a Circumhorizontal arc (combined with a 22° hallo around the Sun). It took around 5 minutes for it to properly illuminate, but made the sense of spectacular Himalayas even more spectacular!
