The photo above shows the nearly full Snow Moon rising above Vallentuna, Sweden on February 1, 2007. The twilight sky was fantastic along the eastern horizon, with very strong, almost purple colors and the "Belt of Venus," giving the Moon a decided pink hue.

Photo details: Canon Digital Rebel XT camera, 75-300 mm objective, tripod mounted.
