Lunar Occulation

This was an eclipse with a difference - Venus being eclipsed by the crescent moon - apparently it's aclled a 'lunar occulation'.

The photo was taken about 5.15 tonight. I managed to get home, run into the flat, grab my camera and open the window just in time to catch Venus appearing from behind the Moon. The photo isn't great quality because I only have the 'wee' camera lens down here.
