Moon Mars Occultation

Aloha future Martians 🙂
I stayed on Haleakala last night after my tour to watch the Moon-Mars occultation.  It was awesome!!
My camera died right before the main contact but I got these pics leading up to the occultation.
I have been doing astronomy for 26 years and have never seen Mars occulted!!!  Bucket list has a new check mark!!!
Enjoy.
