    Mars occultation by the Moon

    The same exposure for moon and Mars

    It is subsequent to the video that originated the photo (I chose to post it because it shows the planet hiding behind the moon, while the photo video shows a moment before). Realize that the moon and Mars are in the right exposure even in the video!
