Mars Rise at Opposition (Oct 12, 2020)

Mars rising over the harvested field at home on October 12, 2020, with Mars just past its closest approach and just a day before opposition, so it was rising at sunset and was at its brightest, at magnitude -2.6. It shone very brightly even low in the twilight sky.


This is a single exposure with the 200mm lens and Canon 6D MkII. A mild Orton Glow effect added with Luminar 4. Diffraction spikes added with Astronomy Tools Actions.
