Spectacular Moon rise every night at camp....
Last evening we even had one dark hour to stargaze, some stars were reflected in the lake, untill the moon rose. We also saw a few meteors at 2am, but they moon crashed the party a bit!

Can’t wait to get Ricks photos uploaded. Just my iPhone shots when the Moon arrived

the vertical shots show a lot more stars, but they are uploading sideways here from camp. I haven’t been able to upload to Google photos yet.

This morning we had an unusual event as the moon passed in front of Mars. This is a composite of 4 photos taken over 30 minutes as the Moon approaches Mars. Mars is the set of tiny dots to the lower left of the Moon. I had intended to taken the pictures at even intervals... but didn't quite get that done. I didn't get any pictures after Mars reappeared because the sun had risen and Mars was no longer visible.P2180046-Edit.jpg
 
I saw that this morning!
Cool huh? We were actually forecast to have overcast skies and I was thinking that this would be another unusual astrological event that I would miss because of weather. But I got up early anyway and was surprised to see that the sky was mostly clear. Mars is pretty faint right now - not even as bright as some stars. I had to check the camera monitor to make sure it was there!

So glad you captured this - my students and I loved it! (I teach 1st-2nd grade and we've been studying the moon phases.) Thank you!
