the moon and mars

happy solstice everyone (a few days late!)!

did you notice the full moon tonight with the bright planet mars right next to it? for some lucky people around the world, the moon passed right in front of the orange-y planet, but not all of us could see this occult.

today's feature image comes from my very own older sister, Lara.

another nice shot from APOD today: an almost full moon as it passed near mars in our sky last month.
