Moon-Venus Occultation

At 09:18 CET this morning the planet Venus was about to pass behind the Moon. Imaging this by daylight was a bit of a challenge, especially as the sun was nearby, but using a short exposure (1/100th second) and a red filter managed to capture the moment just before Venus disappeared. Image captured using my robotic telescope in Spain.
