Moon, Mars & Jupiter together

Post by michael feist »

22/6/22:0335-0410 BST: Awoke to find the sky clear. The Crescent Moon, with Jupiter up to the right of it, and Mars across to the left of the Moon. Moon & Jupiter just fitted the fov of 8x30 binocular but Mars & Moon did not. Examining Jupiter in the MAK 80 (x32) saw three moons, Io to the east and Ganymede & Callisto to the west. Great details on the Moon, especially the sunlit peaks of the Apennines running into the Lunar night. Archimedes was filled with shadow and the edge of the crater producing a broken ring.
