On the 27th of August I heard some inaccurate news (I don't remember if it was an e-mail!) that Mars will be the closest to earth, so it will be seen like another moon!
On that night I was driving home and suddenly when I remembered I stopped the car and had a walk to see if I can see the moon clearly!
I saw half of a moon :)) But haven't seen the other moon (Mars)! I confess I started looking to the stars like who has lost something :))
But this story has inspired me to make these illustrations...
Another thing, I would like to thank Ioana (Nikitu) because I remembered what she once said in a blog about what to do when we don't feel inspired about something to upload!
Who didn't read it please do! Ioana can write a bible for micro-stockers...
Thanks Ioana I didn't know that! So this blog came 6 years later :)) I am curious about astronomy since I like the mysterious stuff of the old Egyptians and the pharaohs! Many of their phenomenons based on astrology...
No Bible coming soon, maybe after I retire. As for the Mars news, Mars was indeed more visible, but that news is like 8 years old or so and it was maybe larger than Venus, no way the size of the Moon. What I do remember is that it reflected in the sea, which hardly ever happens for anything else other than the Moon and the Sun.
As an astrophysicist I must point out, that Mars is not a moon at all but has two moons itself ;) And I don't consider it as a final frontier, rather as a next step to the great unknown. I still hope that I can go to Mars someday and I will not give up that hope until I die! Of course my camera must join me on that trip :D But perhaps it is more efficient to invent a great fast (warp?-)drive we could go even farther away. :)
Yeah, I still remember her 10th advise :)) And Maen, you could make some illustrations with more planets on it (only one planet in the centre of the image ... if you were a photographer you would know the rule of thirds :))0)))) OK .. these are nice!
