Planetary Photography - 02-29-2016 - Leap Year Moon & Mars

This morning I woke up somewhat early to get a great shot overhead of the waning gibbous Moon (Luna) and the red planet Mars from my back yard. Taken a few minutes after six in the morning on the leap year day - February 29th. A great shot through the tree branches and just above my roof. 

I was also fortunate that the weather was good and skies clear. Usually it seems like all the really good astronomical events happen on rainy or cloudy days. Hope y'all enjoy it.
