Mars from the backyard on 5 July...are you ready for the opposition in October?? 🔭⁠ ⁠ Mars is looking fairly big out there. It appeared about 50% bigger this night than the last image I took in May (scroll down my feed to see it). But even this is still only 1/2 as big as it is going to get in October!⁠ ⁠ The southern ice cap is very visible right now, but if you're going to look at it, do it soon. Almost the entire cap is going to sublimate away as summer sets in over the southern hemisphere. Meanwhile, the northern cap (which we can't see from this angle, will be growing as winter arrives in the north. Unlike Earth, these caps come and go every Martian year.⁠ ⁠ I have had more and more learning taking place over here. I did my best job yet of collimating my telescope, which I think make a pretty huge difference in the detail. ⁠ ⁠ The starfield was composited in because I like the way it looks 😀⁠ ⁠ Celestron 1100 EdgeHD⁠ CGEM DX⁠ ZWO ASI290MC⁠ ⁠ #mars #spacex #space #nasa #redplanet #exploration #wonderlust #cosmos #universe #solarsystem #milkyway #galaxy #mindfulness #astrophoto #celestronrocks #universetoday #planet #icecap #globalwarming #telescope #astrophoto #astro _photography_ #marstronaut #astronaut #stars

Can you spot Curiosity on Mars?? 🔭⁠ ⁠ Follow the dark "scar" going from lower right to upper left. As you approach the upper left, there is a prominent dark line that juts out pointing north. The top part of that line is Gale Crater, a huge 96 mile impact crater. Curiosity landed there almost 8 years ago now and is still operating there today.⁠ ⁠ Also as a reference, I tried to tag the IG account as close as I could to where the rover is.⁠ ⁠ The rover itself is impossibly small, of course, and cannot be seen here. But it's still cool to think that's where it is, still performing it's mission 😀⁠ ⁠ This is the same image as yesterday, but without the starfield. Which one do you like better?⁠ ⁠ Celestron 1100 EdgeHD⁠ CGEM DX⁠ ZWO ASI290MC⁠ ⁠ #mars #curiosity #spacex #space #nasa #redplanet #exploration #wonderlust #cosmos #universe #solarsystem #milkyway #galaxy #mindfulness #astrophoto #celestronrocks #universetoday #planet #icecap #globalwarming #telescope #astrophoto #astro _photography_ #marstronaut #astronaut #stars

We are going to Mars Again in 2026(apart from 2020). Hopefully Tesla will be well established before that in India so that I can help Tesla Owners Mars. #India #Mars #NASA #Tesla #TeslaCommunity #OccupyMars #TeslaIndia #TCIN
