For those of you that may be interested, on the evening of last night, the 7th December, most of North America could witness the Cold Full Moon pass in front of Mars. This rare lunar occultation is made even more rare because Mars is also at opposition.
I was in and out of the house like a yoyo, taking shots hourly, or there abouts. Mainly to warm my hands and face, although it was a beautiful, clear, calm night, it was non the less flippin’ cold. Taking shots as the moon got closer to Mars. The last shot was taken at 5.45am this morning as the moon was setting, and my best shot of Mars, which is a bright red planet.
I will be creating a page about this event along with educational information in the near future.
