    Being an astronomer that isn't, or in other words a geek photographer who likes looking at the stars and knows how to take pictures I often bug geek astronomers who know how to scan the heavens.

    In any event last night was the closest Mars and Earth will be for quite awhile and a few pics thereof for your perusal.

    Wow. That Hubble Telescope gets REALLY close to Mars. But REALLY :shock:
    And the findings!
    It will be all over the news by tomorrow, I am sure!
    Won't it?
    ;)
    What fun!
    The second is great.
    All that detail.
    And I only ever see an orange looking tiny spot in the night sky. NO more.

    Love that second shot. Wonderful!

    Very frightening creatures that Hubble is showing - I think we should stop looking! :lol:
