Lunar rendezvous with Mars

December 24th, 2007 by Chris

Many of you probably heard about this already, but Mars and the full Moon passed beautifully close last night (at least from our perspective). I took the following picture which is not quite what I hoped, but then it’s rather hard to get a good exposure on the moon and still see Mars… even at its brightest. In the northwest US and Canada, the moon actually occulted Mars.
