Moon Mars And Saturn

Moon Mars And Saturn

This was a night for preplanning and last minute research. That evening, I was getting pinged by my Aurora Alerting app (free, with a $2.99 alert upgrade, in app purchase), so I thought a late night excursion was in order. I checked The Photographer’s Ephemeris ($8.99) to find the moons position and phase. While we were on location, I noticed a bright celestial object, so I checked Sky Guide ($1.99) to learn more. I found out that after the Moon, the next brightest objects were Mars and Saturn. The orange glow in the lower left was Airdrie and Calgary.

In the best light…
