A scene you will probably never get to see. This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point. And, you also see the sun below the moon. An amazing photo and not one easily duplicated.

My sister is visiting here from her home in Singapore. I called to her, come and see this cool picture of the North Pole!

She wanders in and says, oh that one. My husband has that as his screen saver.


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Ahh, if only the photo was genuine...

http://www.hoax-slayer.com/current-issue.html

And a forum post from the same website:

It's a nice bit of computer-generated imagery, but no way is it a real photo. Here's what I take away from looking at it: 1) There's no liquid water at the pole to create the reflection of the moon shown in the image. 2) The "land" around the reflection is brown and very earth-like, impossible at the North Pole. 3) No camera would allow you to image the Sun and the ground and in the Sun's glare discern background stars. 4) No focal length with which I am familiar could show the Moon that big and also show such a wide angle view of the Sun's glare. And finally, 5) the Sun-Earth-Moon geometry won't support a crescent Moon being visible from anywhere near a pole such that it appears to be directly above the Sun on the horizon.

IMO, if the photo was truly genuine I doubt the photographer would allow it to be published without at least photo credit acknowledgement.
