This post continues my Moon and and tiny-spot planet seriesOn Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at 7 PM, the Moon and the planet Saturn could were close to each other in the southern sky above Syracuse, NY. While the planet Saturn is a white dot in the photograph, it was still interesting to see it and the Moon together. 

The Moon was in its Waxing Crescent Phase on this night, and at the time of the photograph, had an illumination of 44.3%. The distance of the Moon from Earth was 376,416 km, while Saturn was 1,507.06 million km from Earth.

  1. Tiny dot photography, LOL. Very neat to see your perspective.

    1. Thanks a lot, Shelly. I recently picked up a new telephote, and while it's not telescope magnification, I'm finding I can get some interesting photographs of the Moon.
