The scene looks out from a beach at Sea Isle City, New Jersey, USA, planet Earth.

Similar in size to Earth, Venus lies just beyond the inner boundary of the habitable zone. The watery reflection of light from our inhospitable sister planet is seen along a calm, cold ocean and low cloud bank. http://www.jackfusco.com/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=140307 #APOD
