Details:
Venus was so much brighter than the moon. This photo was taken about 40 minutes after sunrise. The sky was very bright, but there was no problem seeing either body throughout the event. Right after this shot, the moon continued to silently glide over Venus. It took well over a minute for Venus to completely disappear.
