The Moon, Uranus and Mars meet at dawn
On 22 July 2022, the Moon had a nice conjunction with Uranus, helping to locate the otherwise largely missed first planet of modern era. Mars was not far from them, enriching the view.
I managed to capture the event from my balcony in Rome, Italy. I used one of my Canon 5D mark IV bodies with a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, both installed on a sturdy tripod. I worked at 200 mm focal length, offering the perfect image scale and field of view.
Now, I’m looking forward to see Mars in conjunction with Uranus, on 2 Aug. 2022!
