Picture taken from Croatian capital Zagr

Picture taken from Croatian capital Zagreb, on December 01, 2008, shows a slender crescent moon, just 15-percent illuminated, as it appears in very close proximity to the two brightest planets in our sky, Jupiter (L) and Venus (up, R). Astronomers refer to this rare phenomenon as an "occultation," taken from the Latin word occultare, which means "to conceal." This eye-catching sight will be visible in complete darkness across much of Eastern Europe. AFP PHOTO/ HRVOJE POLAN (Photo credit should read HRVOJE POLAN/AFP via Getty Images)
