The Moon occults Jupiter (again!)
For the third time this year, the Moon occulted Jupiter in the wee morning hours. Around 03:00 on December 26, the giant planet was obscured by our Moon. The event was ultra-marginal, but that didn't deter Georg Moolman and Michael Poll from photographing the event.
(left) Georg Moolman used an 85-mm Televue refractor (and a chimney) to photograph the pair, low on the horizon, setting on the opposite side of Pretoria. (right) Michael Poll imaged the duo as they set behind the mountain from his vantage point.
