Sun at night

Sun and stars at the same time

Probably one of my best of all recent photos (it got almost 20.000 views in just a few hours on Google+). Milky Way and the sun at the same time... wait a second... sun? at night? Well, it's a little cheat of course. In fact it's full moon. But by overexposing it a little bit I managed to get this quite surreal effect.
