Moon Occults Mars
The Moon occulted the planet Mars on Monday night from our point of view. Here is what it looked like, assembled from a sequence of images exposed for 1/125 second at ISO 200 with a DSLR attached to a 5-inch f/6.3 refractor.
The images were spaced at approximately 1 minute intervals around the ingress and egress of Mars.
