Image Details:

The sky this evening was fair at best, but I was able to capture this image of an over exposed Mars and the planet Uranus through thin clouds. The distance of Uranus from Earth is currently 2,939,964,424 kilometers, equivalent to 19.652448 Astronomical Units. Light takes 2 hours, 43 minutes and 26.6657 seconds to travel from Uranus and arrive to us.
