Baby moon

It looks like the moon now has a moon of its own. Looking up right now, I see the crescent moon, and right next to it a super-bright star like thing. Further investigation seems to indicate that the "baby moon" is in fact Venus, not a brand-new planetary body, and not an orbiting spaceship or UFO. Oh well. Still, pretty cool.

This might not be visible at locations far from Haifa.

UPDATE: Picture here. And I like when the link at the bottom of the post says "1 comments".

I saw it last night at kibbutz Lotan (in the Arava). At one point the moon eclipsed Venus, but unfortunately I missed that.
