Image Details:

This magnificent planet shining bright in the skies is a fortnight away from its annual opposition 🤩
Due to clouds, it isn't possible to image frequently however I do ensure I see it whenever skies permit, I can definitely see the planet brightening up.
Hoping to image it in its full glory on 27th August.
