Re: [guide-user] Earth- Sun conjunction May 11 1984 as seen from Mars

Gerhard Dangl Jun 9, 2014


set the mag limit for planets to a fainter value. Right click on earth
disk and left click on display. It seems that the earth brightness is
going below a limit during the transit as seen from Mars.

I can show the same effect as described by you if the limit value is set
too bright.

I am using guide9.exe from April 2014.
