Visibility II / V

Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The moon was supposed to cover Uranus on December 5. around 19:00. I took a few pictures after 5 in the evening, when a patch of clouds was already forming in the sky.

Luckily I took it, because at the time of the eclipse the sky was completely covered. to the clouds.

In the pictures, Uranus was faintly visible, but still clear. The blue color is striking in the pictures, it has not been emphasized at all.

The triple image is from Stellarium, at 17:34.
