Jupiter ja Mars - 7.1.2018 at 08.04 Jyväskylä Observation number 69312

Visibility IV / V

Harri Kiiskinen, Jyväskylän Sirius

From the previous, my Sky Watch observation seems to be almost four months old, so the early winter has been quite unhappy with the weather. Now, however, the light at the end of the tunnel.

The encounter between Jupiter and Mars was quite spectacular in the brightening morning sky, and this time the clouds were, by some miracle, on the sidelines. The telescope was at the beak of the shaky Camera Stand, so the close-up was a little hazy, but let’s go after such a long break. And the Moon was great too.
