Jupiter ja Mars - 7.1.2018 at 06.31 - 7.1.2018 at 07.00 Lempäälä Observation number 69467

Visibility V / V

Ari Haavisto, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Jupiter rose above the horizon as a shining star, beneath it a fiery red glowing spark of Mars. The sight was visually exceptionally beautiful. Jupiter was only about 9 degrees high, and the big Dobson could only be barely pointed so down. With a planetary camera, I would click the image through the infrared filter. There was so much cloud cover in the sky that the moons of Jupiter remained invisible, and the details of the shallows did not come off.

Linked to a full size image of what the camera will be (large). It has a spatial atmosphere ...,+Jupiter+ja+Satunus+2018/Jup_Mars_07012018_063124_full_ir.jpg/_full.jpg
