    This may seem like a simple picture, but in fact, besides counting on luck, it had to be very well planned.
    Planned to catch the precise moment the HD 168233, of magnitude +9.25, was exactly between the ring of Saturn and the globe of the planet. A little before, or shortly after, she would be covered up. . .
    To count on luck, so that the atmospheric conditions would allow the capture at the exact moment. . .
    The truth is, luck always provides persistence, and persistence can bring us unusual results.
    Another photo that had been saved for the Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2019 that deserves to be published!
