Venus in Clouds

A Corona/Aureole around Venus.

Created by cloud particles scattering light and more often seen around the much brighter moon. But as we can see Venus, and even Jupiter, are bright enough when the conditions are right. The aureole is the white glow around Venus. The corona is colorful, and is seen here as the reddish tinge on the outer edge. As usual, more info can be found here.
