On March 29, Saturn was fixed up consummately with the Moon in the night sky, appearing to nearly contact the lunar item.
This regular occasion called an occultation, is not entirely obvious. Be that as it may, this picture taker in South Africa figured out how to catch it at the ideal minute.
Concede Petersen in Johannesburg shared this staggering photograph on Twitter a month ago, one he caught by joining his cell phone to his telescope. "That was frickin tremendous," he said in the tweet. "I'm grinning from ear to ear, nothing going to get me off this stargazing high."
The picture Petersen caught is really from a blend of photographs pulled from a five-second video. He caught the recording utilizing a Samsung Galaxy S8 related to a home stargazing telescope.
Petersen is a devoted beginner astrophotographer, himself motivated by those that preceded him. Also, he's continually searching for the following enormous stargazing occasion, regardless of whether that is a passing comet, space rock flyby, or something else.

"At the point when an occasion like this tags along and all works out as expected, and [we] can maintain a strategic distance from issues like climate, gear disappointment, or a human mistake, it feels like an extraordinary achievement," he said.
