Moon And Venus

On September 11, 2010 I snapped some photos of the Moon and some interesting storm clouds. I did not even realize at the time that Venus was in the shot until I went back and reprocessed the data and checked the location of Venus in TheSkyX. I had posted a redder version of this on my Facebook page, and when a similar APOD was posted (5/12/2013), I had to do a double take. The APOD was more recent (and okay, a little better ;-), but they mentioned the September 2010 specifically, and I had actually photographed it unknowningly!

Venus is a challenge to spot, you might mistake it for a hot pixel, but it's there!
