I've seen a lot of sunrises and sunsets but never any stars at the same time. Maybe venus.

I also noticed that the sun was setting on the North side of the church but the light was hitting the South side of the building. It must be magic.

You guys are really studying this picture aren't you? Ha! The sun is on the north side-and I have seen stars when the sun is that low, but not nearly as many as there are on this picture. Fake!

buddy, are you taking into consideration that the photographer probably used an extended exposure time and this would make the stars, comet, and sun look brighter?

What direction does the church face?

50201,The Church faces the East!! Did I say the sun and stars and comet were bright? I do not remember saying that. I have never seen so many stars that time of night and I guess I do not remember the sun going down in the North like that either.
If you want to believe it is real that is up to you-If I want to believe it is fake that is up to me. If I am wrong I am wrong. No biggie!!

I bet the reason you think that you are seeing more stars in the picture, than you do in when your out there, is because the extended exposure makes more stars visible.

i have taken many pictures at night. the camera, if its a good one will pick up lots of stars that you don't see. also if you keep the lens open long enough, and it doesn't take that long. you can make a dark night look like daytime. the picture could be fake, but it could also be real.
