The Moon, Venus, and Mars

© 2017 Klaus Brasch

Last night Kwang, Jeff and I ventured to Wupatki and enjoyed some of the darkest most transparent skies in a long while. The Moon, Venus and Mars were dazzling, almost like light 'pollution' because of the clarity. I shot them with a 200 mm telephoto. After moonset we saw incredibly detailed winter Milky Way and of course ever-dominant Orion. I shot it with a 40 mm wide angle lens and the Canon 6D. Great night!.
