On 17 July 2007, there was a dazzling conjunction of the Moon and Venus in the Egyptian skies. The Moon was only a few degrees to the northeast of Venus.BA Senior Astronomy Specialist, Aymen Ibrahem, pictured the fascinating view, producing numerous interesting photos.
 
Ibrahem was observing near the beach, where some children were flying kites. Ibrahem took photos of the kites crossing his view of the Moon-Venus conjunction. Ibrahem named his series of photos "Kite to the Moon".
