    It is quite real!
    Video is made on 22 may 2007 from a real event by Jan Koet, Wateringen Netherlands, through a 18 cm Astrophysics refractor. He is a member of astronomical observatory Rijswijk and we sometimes show it to the public to demonstrate the apparent dimensions of Saturn and the Moon.
