Love Moon

We are wondering why after we left the church in Greenbelt in Makati yesterday, many people keep staring at the sky and taking some pictures. We went to the open space and checked the sky and I was amazed when I looked and saw a star (which i found out later that it is the planet Venus) sitting on the cresent moon and it was so beautiful.

I made some research and found out that it is known as a planetary occultation in which a rare display will happen in the twilight sky when the Earth, Moon and Venus are all in alignment. This astronomical phenomenon occurred when the Moon came between Venus and the Earth.

Whatever scientific explaination it has, I'm just in awed that I was able to witness it like everyone else.
