Moon Venus And Saturn Alignment Seen from Mount Etna with Moon Corona e Venus Pillar 2

Focus stack
We have just arrived on the southern slope of Etna and immediately headed towards this beautiful coniferous grove. We were waiting for the magical moment when the Moon, Venus and Saturn would show up in perfect alignment. Unfortunately the clouds covered part of the sky during sunset but not enough to prevent celestial objects from appearing on the horizon. The scene is wonderful: the crescent moon appears in all its splendor surrounded by a marvelous crown while Venus accompanies Saturn showing a small luminous pillar around it due to the presence of ice crystals in the atmosphere.
