  1. Today, an extremely rare celestial event took place. The moon passed in front of the planet Mars, obscuring it from view for around 1 hour. This event was only visible from a small part of the world, around southeast Asia I was able to capture the reappearance of Mars from behind the moon at 7:11pm local time! An absolutely incredible experience. My first planetary occultation. Last night there were thunderstorms in my area, so I was trying to keep my hopes down for the big day. But fortunately, I lucked out with clear sky. I have waited for this event since 1+ year, so I’m extremely glad I was able to capture it. Mars has moved away from the earth and is quite small in the sky now, hence the surface details aren’t as good as last year end. This image is a blend of two videos, processed and stacked to compensate for the relative motion of the moon and Mars.

  8. Here is Mars with its two small asteroid moons Phobos and Deimos! I’m really surprised I was able to capture these very faint moons. I overexposed the image and barely detected them near mars, in the correct positions according to my app to confirm I identified them correctly. The first image is a blend of two exposures to show both mars and the moons. GSO 8” CC CEM-40 Neximage 5 Canon eos R Best 5% of 22k frames 1:53am 23rd September 2020 Agra, India
