JACKSON, Wyo. — Last night, the last full moon of 2022 rose over Jackson Hole and an astronomical event accompanied it. A lunar occultation occurred, which means the moon slowly crept towards Mars, eventually obstructing the bright red “star” from view.
The display was visible in Jackson Hole and began a few hours after sunset. The moon rose just before 4:20 p.m.
