Still under siege February 19, 2007

Posted by dorigo in astronomy, personal, social life, travel.

This evening I arrived in Venice with a train from Padova at 7PM. It took me about three minutes to get past the crowd pressing to enter the train – forget London-style orderly queues: people were nudging and pushing in all directions.

Once past the crowd, I stopped in front of the train station to take a picture of the setting crescent moon, just two degrees north of brilliant Venus. Notice the crowd. Not extraordinary, but this is a Monday evening.

It’s a Monday evening … and in winter. Imagine the summer months when the tourists are out.

Thanks for the webcams, GW. The sun is currently setting on the crowded Piazza San Marco.

Cool stuff.

True, Hank. In summer it’s even worse, but at least one hopes to be away!
