Moon & Mercury over the astronomical Jadran

On 29 Sept., 2016, a wonderful morning celestial meeting of Moon and Mercury appeared over Mali Lošinj, Croatia, with two small islands Kozjak (the big one in the center of image) and Sveti Petar island (partially visible on right) of northern Adriatic sea. The place is well known for historical Manora Observatory, founded in the end of 19th century by Leo Brenner, after who was named crater on the Moon. Such a symbolic moment with the colors of dawn made the view really magical.
