of the Pantheon (built at the beginning of the 2nd century AD). The oculus is a circular opening with a diameter of 9 m on top of the huge cupola (height: 43 m). The floor in the Pantheon is higher in the middle than at the fringe (correct word?). Thus the rain water coming in through the hole in the cupola can drain off in a gully system.

for the first moment I thought that this is the moon :)

Petra, this one is superb! 'Wow' does not even begin to describe how clever your framing is. And I also thought this could be the Moon with the clouds! Very quirky but surely a candidate for the POM, in my opinion.

wow... same as Louis. I also though it is the moon. vote for POM!

Rafal, Krys, Ralph - thanks, guys, you are just too kind. It's only a joke pic. ;-)

Petra, I too thought this was the moon! The fact that it is taken through the oculus is amazing. Such clarity, a superb photo!

I just read your comment about this being a "joke" way. Sometimes those are the ones that surprise us the most.

Rafal, Krys, Ralph, Jilly - this is the moon! ;-),

Excellent! The image should be mirrored so that the GLOBOlogo compliments and balances it.
