An Alien Sky?

The Astronomy Picture of the Day web site highlighted this photo today of what looks like a daytime sky from another planet.

It was actually taken of our daytime sky using a small refracting telescope; The small crescent is Venus, and the larger one is the moon. Click on the image to see a higher resolution version, and find all the details on how the image was taken here.

Ok. This is one of, if not the, coolest astronomy shots I've ever seen.
