Mars ja Plejadit - 2.3.2021 at 23.40 Vaasa Observation number 96435

Visibility III / V

Tommi Järvilehto, Vaasan Andromeda

This encounter between Mars and the Pleiades had to be filmed. Next time in 17 years.

Photographed on the shore of the center of Vaasa. It wasn't quite a clear sky, but enough. Even the northern lights green in the northern sky when seen with the naked eye.

Rays formed by a nearby street lamp on the right side of the star landscape image.
