Photographer Takes Once-In-Lifetime Shot Of The Moon Dressed As Saturn

Photographer Captures Rare Image of Moon Resembling Saturn

A photographer in Guatemala received a great chance to capture an incredible
photograph of the moon disguised as Saturn.

This majestic photograph was shot from the perspective of the Acatenango volcano
base camp. Thanks to the photographer Francisco Sojuel’s six hour long hike we
are able to witness a once in a life-time scenery by our eyes.

He had seen this mesmerizing event suddenly when he looked up at the sky in the early
morning before sunrise. He had seen the moon as if it was dressed as Saturn.

Both Guatemalan highlands and the silhouette of Pacaya volcano is shown in the lower
part of the image. As per to what Sojuel said, the cloud seems to be a
cirrostratus cloud made of ice crystals.

He had seen halos around the moon when seen from different angles. The texture of the
surrounding cloud has been a bit thick and fluffy. Perhaps, it is a
cirrostratus fibratus or a cirrus spissatus cloud. Both these clouds are quite
denser than the other ones and are often made by strong winds.

Sojuel is a well-known character in the field of photography. He has gathered fame for
astrophotography and amazing landscape photography. Scroll down to check out
some other wonderful shots of him.
