At the end of July, Mars was at its closest point to earth in 60,000 years! For context, it was only 35 million miles away (it averages 140 million miles). We headed to the mountains with a bunch of friends to sleep outside and view our neighboring planet, seen here in the upper left corner with a little lens flare from the 10” shutter speed. What made it all the more inspiring is that took place during a new moon, allowing it to shine in its red celestial glory.
