Close Encounter... Moon and Mars


If you look carefully at this admittedly low-quality picture of the moon, you'll notice Mars at about 5 O'Clock. Kate and I had heard that the planet Mars and the moon would be having a close encounter this week, but we hadn't expected that they would be seen this close to each other in the sky. This picture was taken over city lights, on a digital camera without a tripod.
