Moon/Mars Conjunction of December 23rd, 2007
For those of you who were less fortunate than
myself, and did not get a hole in the clouds
last night to view the Moon/Mars
here are a couple of quick shots I squeezed
out through some sucker holes.
I was surprised how
Mars looked, but I guess I should have expected it since Mars is VERY
bright right now. As
you can see from the shot above there was a lot of ice in the sky.
It made a
nice Moon bow and still allowed Mars to shine through.
you don't see Mars, look very close to the Moon's limb, at 1:00.)
The shot below was
acquired at 1/350th of a second @ Prime Focus of my Meade 8”
Both images using a
Canon 30D @ 400 ISO.
