Still under siege February 19, 2007Posted 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.
