Visibility III / V

Tommi Ropponen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

In separate images for the period from January to March 2016, a few different lunar phases are depicted. A composite of these combination. According to added another Jupiter from the same period. Mars photographed with different equipment was found in the material a couple of years ago, so I scaled it to the right size and connected it to the picture. Edit: All now also as separate images after the maintenance request.

The resolution of the full-size image is 6854 x 3427, so here you can see some details about the moon as well. Better details ->

The location is Leppävaara in Espoo.
