  1. Venus passed in front of the sun, relative to Earth, on October 26, 2018. At that point, it switched from an evening (just after sunset) planet to a morning (just before sunrise) planet. This picture if aken on the indicated date is a sunrise picture, not a sunset picture.

  2. I am the one who took the picture. You are correct; this is a sunRISE picture. Just a typo in the post
