Mars: that's a wrap

Recommended Posts

Isn’t Mars the most fascinating sight? It is such a thrill to explore another world and see the desert markings, polar features and clouds come and go.

With Mars now disappearing behind the sun for another 18 months, I went through my Mars images from the last opposition. Needless to say, many are rubbish due to atmospheric seeing but there are a few sharp images worthy of presentation. Here are the best in chronological order to show Mars growing in size to opposition in December and then receding.


In fact, I put together a short video showing the set up and image gathering:  https://youtube.com/shorts/DXtgkPoCzMY?feature=share.

Thank you all for your kind words. Yes, shame to say goodbye to our old friend but we look forward to more views later in 2024 - I just hope the skies clear by then!
