The triptych shows the Moon and Venus beginning to set, and the stars slowly appearing as the sky gradually darkens. It was taken from Bretagne, France on April 21, 2007. You can also see that the Moon shifts slowly toward the right and that the Venus-Moon distance is closer in the right most picture. Each picture is taken 20 minutes after the previous one.
