Moon and Mars Tonight

I can see Mars, Can you? Also, there is a really cool, very large, looking ring circling the moon. What is that? Go take a look and tell me what you think.

Merry Christmas to all and Happy Holidays!

make a wish man. I need to clean our telescope...I put the high mag lens in and the reflector was so dusty all I saw was specs. I was hoping to get a better view of mars. Although the view of the moon came out good with the less powerful lens.

Did anyone happen to get a halo picture? I tried to with my iPhone and my digital camera. It's funny though cause my iPhone captured a better picture than my camera did..
