Venus, Mars and the Moon February 21, 2015

Yesterday, today and tomorrow those three will appear very close in the sky. Caught this last night, an amazing sight through binoculars. The dot above and very very slightly to the right of Venus is Mars and through binoculars is clearly red in colour.

Meanwhile, here’s an interesting mystery, a plume in the Martian atmosphere which can’t be fitted into current atmospheric models. Of course there’s a perfectly natural explanation no doubt but some of the fun is seeing how it is resolved.

Do you know what that bright star / planet beside the moon this evening is? Or how I could find out such a thing?

Got a beautiful clear view of that last night here in Berlin – skys were clear and you could clearly see the disk of the moon.
