Moon Occults Mars

By: Doug Zubenel


Region: Americas

Site: Kansas - USA

Date: 2010 December 6

This telephoto view of early evening twilight above Kansas, shows the young Moon only few degrees above the western horzizon. But this is not a regular crescent Moon view. It shows moments after Mars occultation by the Moon. The red planet has reappeared in the sky, only minutes before it sets in the horizon. Doug Zubenel
