Here is one version showing Mars but the moon is washed out, and the second with the moon well exposed but Mars is not showing up here.

Darn! I was too busy baying at the moon to notice Mars! I'll have to try to see it tonight, if I can control myself!

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.

Mars in the evening - Venus in morning

Yep, it is Mars and this is the brightest it will be for a few years, but it is not as bright as it was back a few years. I could see the polar caps and some terain features through my 16" Dob back then. Too busy to get it out sofar this time.

Also, you ought to check out Venus in the morning. It is extremely bright.

Merry Christmas to all,
