Castle and Sky


While Comet McNaught ruled southern skies,
last week's conjunction of the Moon and Venus
could be enjoyed by denizens
of both hemispheres of planet Earth.

The two more commonly viewed celestial beacons
produced this lovely twilight scene, recorded last
Saturday in skies above Almodovar
near Cordoba
in southern Spain.

Brilliant Venus and a slender
crescent Moon seem to overlook the small town, along with a well-lit

The impressive castle's construction
began in the 700s on the strategic site of a Roman fort.

It was extensively restored in the 20th century.
