Occultation of Mars on 12/08/22

Brixen / Plose   Italia


Approach of the moon to Mars ca.5.45 CET


The astronomical event began at 6.07 CET about 18° above the horizon with the disappearance of the "Red Planet" behind the moon. At this point the seeing was still reasonably O.K

The exit took place at about 7.03 CET about 9° slack degrees above the horizon. Now the seeing was catastrophic

View from St Andrä / Plose (cable car) over the Königsanger and Kühberg approx. 2400 m.


Construction and comfortable -6C° at the observation point, brrrr. Slight danger of icing during the night!
Nevertheless, unique astronomical impressions were experienced again.
