An astronomy student has managed to capture footage of Mars rotating.
Using a telescope and a DSLR camera, Joel Miller filmed the red planet for three hours from his back garden near Bicester, Oxfordshire.
Mr Miller then selected the best 75% of frames and processed them using computer software.
The 25-year-old, who is studying a PhD in astronomy at the University of Nottingham, said he was “absolutely blown away” with the results.
