Lancing the Moon - photo by Miguel Claro, Portel, Portugal - via Lunar photo of the day 19.07.2012 | In the image we can see the sword of Dom Nuno Álvares Pereira, bypassing the Moon. He was a Portuguese general of great success who had a decisive role in the 1383-1385 crisis that assured Portugal's independence from Castile. He later became a mystic, was beatified by Pope Benedict XV in 1918 and was canonised by Pope Benedict XVI in 2009. For this reason, his sword is turned down...

Sword of Pereira - Miguel Claro The photo above shows the sword of Dom Nuno Alvares Pereira appearing to pierce the waning crescent Moon. It was captured in Portel, Portugal a little before dawn on.
