Mars Beckons Part 3 Hubble Space Telescope Views Mars

Hey Space Placers!

Due to Virginia becoming Venus as far as cloud cover I have not been able to take one single picture of Mars through my telescope or even in the night time sky. Needless to say this has been very, very FRUSTRATING to me!!

Well, Hubble Space Telescope (HST) doesn't have that problem. This picture of the Red Planet was taken by HST on 5/12/16 at a distance of 50 million miles from Earth and the detail is exquisite as you can see.


I really hoping that the sky will clear so I can attempt some pics of Mars this opposition.

I'll have my final part tomorrow on what to look for in the coming weeks.
