Mauritius seen from Reunion and vice versa

Well-known local photographer Luc Perrot published a photo this week of Mauritius seen from Piton de la Fournaise, Reunion Island. He explained that winter brings clear night skies, which make this sort of photo possible.

As some people seemed to think it wasn't possible to see Mauritius from Reunion, Mauritian photographer Burty Makoona sent the photo below, which Perrot annotated.

Another photo by Perrot was recently Photo of the Day on the Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) website (EPOD is a service of the Universities Space Research Association).
