Equipment:

Canon 350D SLR 55mmlens 1/8Sec @ 800ASA

Description:

This view, looking west from Sheffield towards Manchester airport 30 miles away would normally be laced with three or four vapour trails, but the ongoing eruption of the Eyjafjallajoekull volcano in Iceland has turned the whole of the UK and much of northern Europe into a no-fly zone. The high altitude dust cloud is also starting to produce some interesting sunsets. The view shows the New Moon with Venus. Tiny Mercury is also in there somewhere!
