1. My dear pokerfan!
What an astonishing and beautiful pic!

The colors are incredible, and of course the moon and planets are awesome...

I just love those brilliant sunsets!

Thanks for posting...

2. I can tell by the moon and the two planets that it was taken a few days ago.
And it is indeed gorgeous! Thanks for posting it. What is the location?

3. That is a great photo!
:)

By the time I had read about the Happy Face, it was an upside-down frowning face :|

APOD is a wonderful site. I have my work desktop from it (a dual-exposure of the night sky in Arizona, I think.)

6. The big version is 3:2 aspect ration
and 2000 pixels wide so it would make a terrific wallpaper.

Since all light in the picture (I don't see any stars) is reflected light from the sun, it just proves how much our sun loves us and wants us to be happy!

7. I was looking for the smiley face in the sunset and thought you were crazy
Now I see it! I had read about that the other day.
