Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far

Take 2


In Late August of 2003 Mars was as close as it will come to earth in our life time (unless something really drastic takes place.)

Those evenings were very clear, and we had this fabulous full moon. The funny thing that happened with this shot was between the over exposure of  the planet and its actual red color, I got this amazing red orb. This has not been photo-shopped (other than text)

I always loved this picture.
