Convergence

Here is my best photograph of Venus, Mars, and the setting crescent moon from the evening of February 20. Yesterday the 21st was a huge snowstorm, so nothing was visible. My camera settings admitted too much light, so here is the original – the lightest – Mars, Venus, and the moonwith various adjustments for contrast, color, and/or brightness. Mars was definitely orange, although it doesn’t seem so in the photos.  You could see the full sphere of the moon filling out the crescent.convergenceP1030508-2P1030508-3

    Hi Carmen! I was so disappointed when I saw the photos, since the sighting was so clear. Then today I realized, “Why not try some adjustments?”

  6. Breathtaking capture!.
