Is the above photo a real one-shot of the sun and the moon? Naah!
This photo has been 'borrowed' by some on social media with the claim that it was taken by a German photographer with 16 cameras, and he had to wait for 62 days for some reason, and it "can be only seen again in 2035."
It's impossible for the sun and the full moon to be on the same side of the sky, as explained in this Spanish article. The full moon has to be on the opposite side of the sky - when it's on the same side of the sky it's the new or dark moon. The photo was made from three separate images of the sun, the moon and the trees by Bess Hamiti, who is a photographer but not German, using Photoshop, as he explains in this video:
Hamiti uses the same pair of trees in other photo composites seen in his gallery.
