Astrophotographer Abdul Dremali form Boston captured these gorgeous photos of Mars and its golden reflection above a beach in Rode Island. The images clearly show the red planet, which is currently its brightest since 2003.

“I drove down to Rhode Island for the new moon since that’s the best time to catch the Milky Way,” Dremali says. “I knew Mars was near opposition, so I timed to be out there by 10 pm when Mars was rising. I’ve captured Mars many times throughout this Milky Way season, but due to a severe Martian storm, and it being so close, it’s brighter than ever.”

The photos are available below and you can follow Dremali on Instagram for more amazing shots of the night sky, but also much more.
