Trifecta at Twilight

Explanation: On February 18, as civil twilight began in northern New Mexico skies, the International Space Station, a waning crescent Moon, and planet Mars for a moment shared this well-planned single field of view. From the photographer’s location the sky had just begun to grow light, but the space station orbiting 400 kilometers above the Earth was already bathed in the morning sunlight. At 6:25am local time it took less than a second to cross in front of the lunar disk moving right to left in the composited successive frames. At the time, Mars itself had already emerged from behind the Moon following its much anticipated lunar occultation. The yellowish glow of the Red Planet is still in the frame at the upper right, beyond the Moon’s dark edge.

说明:在2月18日那天,北墨西哥天空的民用曙光启始之时,国际太空站、残月和火星,短暂共享这片经过精心规画的视野。从摄影者所在的位置看出去,天空刚开始变亮,然而轨道离地表400公里高的国际太空站,早就沐浴在清晨的阳光中。在这幅摄于当地时间早晨6:25的组合影像里,国际太空站从右到左,用了不到1秒时间就掠过月盘的前方。在那时,火星经历了久被期待的月掩星事件,已然在月亮的后方复现。在这幅影像里,泛黄的火星高悬在右上角、月亮黝黑临边的后方。

火星经历了久被期待的月掩星事件,已然在月亮的后方复现。在这幅影像里,泛黄的火星高悬在右上角、月亮黝黑临边的后方。好棒,很难遇见的
