Earthshine and Venus

Earthshine is a soft, faint glow on the dark side of the moon caused by the reflection of sunlight from the Earth.  I was able to catch this phenomena from my neighborhood with my digital camera.  This is still one of my favorite pictures that I have taken (without a telescope).
