My favorite moment in the 2022 occultaion of Mars by the Moon was at 9:13PM when Mars was just emerging from behind the moon. This image captures it still just slightly obscured rising above the southern highlands of the moon. I've rotated my image to emphasise the similarity to sunrise and moonrise images here on earth. The image below is linked to the full size image.
The full size image was upscaled with Topaz Gigapixel AI. You can just make out some surface detail from the Elysium Planitia / Terra Cimmeria region. Additional image details are available in my prior post. For a closer look here is a crop.
