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!
