Luna's moon

The Moon, with Mars to its lower left, last night. This was an hour or two after they passed each other in a very close approach. Clouds have obscured their meeting each of the last few months, so I was very glad to catch this one. In the photo, the bodies are only about two degrees apart.

A few minutes earlier. Sometimes clouds produce beautiful effects around the moon, though few are as striking as this one.

Mars alone, in Luna's glow.

Very nice images, as usual, Kevin. The coulds really make an ethereal effect.
