Mars, Crescent Lunar Occultation 02-18-2020

Mars with Lunar occultation (covered), 02-18-2020. Mars crept out from behind the Moon and appeared through the clouds this morning. Shortly after I made this image at 5:57am the clouds dispersed. Had I stirred from my sleep a couple of hours earlier I would have been able to observe Mars get swallowed up by the bright crescent. Thanks for looking. G

  1. Amazing. I’ve been enjoying your daily photos for several months now after a friend told me about your work. Thank you for seeing and posting.
