Conjunction of Mars and Neptune
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

This month produced a very close conjunction of Mars and Neptune with the two planets separated by only a couple of arc minutes or so. This image shows a very overexposed Mars, with a bluish Neptune close by. And very near to Neptune, its large moon Triton is clearly visible. The image is a composite of 12 x 10sec exposures.
