    Great photo of the moon

    This is the sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point last week.
    A scene you will probably never get to see in person,

    so take a moment and enjoy God at work at the North Pole.
    And, you also see the sun below the moon.
    An amazing photo and not one easily duplicated.

    Thats got to be fake. Unless its a trickery of being at the poles...The sun and moon are roughly the same size for one and the alignment is wrong to get that cresent moon. Where did you get this from?




    just found this...its a fake

    Most images that try to sell themselves with a reference to a deity turn out to be fake; nature of the beast.
