Mars & Saturn: Images Four Years Apart


Recommended Posts

After getting out before dawn to observe and image the planets I looked through my images to discover I had taken an image of Mars and Saturn almost exactly four years prior. Is this a pattern? I wouldn't be surprised; I just hadn't considered it before:

And visible to us in the United States, Mars and Saturn will pass less than 0.3 degrees of each other on April 4 and 5.  I will be up at dawn to see it!

 

Cheers!
