Kuu ja Jupiter

27.7.2021 at 00.30 - Kuusamo (III)
Voitto Pitkanen

The night was cool and relatively clear. It is not yet possible to speak of twilight, but still Jupiter stood out bright from the southeast. With the exception of the moon, I have never photographed celestial bodies in July during this 11-year ‘star career’. The encounter between the Moon and Jupiter happened the same night, so this became a record of some sort.

Kuu ja Jupiter

26.7.2021 at 00.30 - Porvoo, Sondby (IV)
Jorma Koski, Ursa (Helsinki)

The moon and Jupiter were six degrees apart. There was a circle to hear. I used the dock bench as a support when the tripods were in the shots of the illuminating night clouds.

Kuu ja Venus

12.6.2021 at 19.58 - 20.13 - Ishikari, Japani (IV)
Esa Kaihlanen

A handsome encounter between the Moon and Venus in the evening sky, about an hour after sunset.

Kuu ja Mars

17.4.2021 at 22.40 - Kuusamo (III)
Voitto Pitkanen

Moon and Mars in the western sky. Northern lights were also visible from the northeast.

Mars ja Plejadit M45

10.3.2021 at 22.00 - Kolari (III)
Jesse Kyytinen, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Mars leaving to separate next to the Sifters

Mars ja Plejadit

7.3.2021 at 20.47 - Järvenpää (III)
Toni Veikkolainen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

The advantage of road works on the corner of the home is still the darkness of the street lights. The encounter between Mars and the Pleiades I had yet to capture the camera on the cell so I decided to try how it works. The thin cloud gauze did not block the view of the objects.

Mars ja Plejadit

7.3.2021 at 19.59 - Kuusamo, Käylä (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

As the evening faded, I photographed Mars and Seulas. I used tracking this time and the image is a cropped 50mm image.

Mars ja Seulaset

5.3.2021 at 21.00 - 22.00 - Rauma (IV)
Jarkko Laukkanen, Porin Karhunvartijat

Mars is closest to Seoul on Wed-Thu night, but there were no filming at that time. There were suns on Friday night, and I decided to take a little longer exposures. This time, the mists of the screens also grabbed weakly. The handsome "propeller" of Mars is made by the dimmer plates of my lens.

Mars ja Plejadit

5.3.2021 at 20.30 - Alavus (IV)
Jukka Koivisto, Suomenselän Pegasus

After a long dry season (bad weather), shooting with some new equipment. This encounter is the first image born. The 300mm tube was a bit cramped for these but when the zoom was inside the temperature then this is a satisfaction.

Mars ja Plejadit

4.3.2021 at 23.00 - Akaa
Markku Ruonala

Last spring Venus flew past the Pleiades and this spring Mars. Visually, these encounters are nice to watch.

Mars ja Plejadit

4.3.2021 at 22.30 - 22.35 - Ylöjärvi (IV)
Henri Toijala

It was nicely visible, even though there was moisture in the air and the lights in the area were disturbing.

Mars ja Plejadit

4.3.2021 at 22.20 - Oulu (III)
Sari Pietikäinen, Corona Borealis, Rovaniemi

Mars and Seulaset were pretty side by side, and even roared right in front of my balcony, so I had to take a photo of them. Unfortunately, my balcony points directly to the city center, so the amount of light pollution is huge. Well, but in a test sense, I took thirty 1.3-second exposures and stacked them. This was a good exercise for using the program (I didn’t stack anything before), but in itself, over time, I got a similar picture from just one picture. And oh, I had to settle for 1-second exposures, the little ones meant the stars would lose their shape ... I hope I can get to shoot Seula...

Mars ja Plejadit

4.3.2021 at 21.29 - Kuusamo, Käylä (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Mars and the Pleiades met in the sky. A couple of nights I watched the situation when it was clear.

Mars ja Plejadit

4.3.2021 at 20.00 - 21.00 - Harjavalta (III)
Eila Syrjälä, Porin Karhunvartijat

The planet Mars is near Seoul.

Mars ja Plejadit

3.3.2021 at 22.30 - Kaarina, Ravattula (III)
Matti Tainio, Porin Karhunvartijat

At the end of the evening, it brightened up and I quickly went to see the encounter between Mars and the Pleiades. On a short telescope, a picture in memory.

Mars ja Plejadit

3.3.2021 at 20.32 - Uurainen (IV)
Erkki Rauhala

Beautiful encounter.

Mars ja Seulaset

3.3.2021 at 20.00 - 21.00 - Lieto (III)
Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Nice couple. I tried to get a little more dim areas in the image by stacking, but it's challenging for a few seconds of exposure and without tracking ... The picture shows ten to three second exposures.

Mars ja Plejadit

2.3.2021 at 22.00 - Jyväskylä (IV)
Juho Kinnunen

While watching the Northern Lights, a picture was also taken of the encounter between Mars and the Pleiades, which also had to be watched the night before without a camera.

Mars ja Plejadit

2.3.2021 at 20.50 - Nakkila (IV)
Juha Ojanperä, Porin Karhunvartijat

Encounter of Mars and Sifters in early March 2021 filmed in traditional style for black and white film.

Mars ja Plejadit M45

1.3.2021 at 22.00 - Jyväskylä (III)
Jesse Kyytinen, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Mars and Seoul ruled the western sky.
