Stunning Midwinter Phenomenon


My friend Sabina sent me this photo of the simultaneous sunset and moonrise at the North Pole. I don't know where she got it, but I think it's much too splendid to keep to myself. If you know to whom credit belongs, please let me know so I can extend it.

CORRECTION: Thanks to Yarrow, here's the NASA's explanation of this image, created by Inga Nielsen, who, going by her URL, is in Denmark.

Gorgeous, but not from our Earth. The Astronomy Picture of the Day identifies it as an artwork by Inga Nielsen
