MARS AND M22 CONJUNCTION Taken by Shahrin Ahmad on April 2, 2018 @ Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Super conjunction between Mars and cluster M22! with Saturn nearby!

Mesmerising view! Just imagine, the light from Mars is about 9 mins, Saturn is 83 mins, while M22 at 10,600 light-years!

Despite some thin clouds, I was glad to be able to get some good data set this morning. Simply beautiful!

Mars and M22 were 0.35 deg apart!
