I thought I would share this unusual perspective of the brightest planet in the night sky.
This image was taken handheld last night somewhere over Texas at 34,000 feet, as we weaved through a widespread area of thunderstorms.

The OOF display in the lower right shows a large red splotch that is the radar return from the large thunderstorm below Venus. A flash of lightning can be seen embedded in that storm cell. The anvil-shaped overhang of an even larger, but dissipating thunderstorm looms farther off in the distance, but is beyond the scale shown on the radar display.

The faint point of light slightly below and left of Venus is a ghost image of the planet that resulted from shooting at an angle through the multi-paned flight deck windshield.
