Mars Above Virgin Island

By: Laurent Laveder


Region: Europe

Site: Brittany - France

Date: 2014 April 9

Mars as its brightest shines next to bright star Spica in Virgo over The Cove of Īle Vierge or the Virgin Island in the Brittany of France. On the far right is the Gibbous Moon and on the far left are lights of the harbor of Morgat. Mars appears here near its opposition with the Earth which happens every 26 months and brought the two planets to closest orbital distance and causes Mars to become quite bright in the Earth sky.
