Mars is at Opposition

Modern man has never been so close to Mars. (Hopefully he'll be much closer in the near future.) Tomorrow morning Mars will be at opposition with the Earth. There are lots of events scheduled for tonight and nights this week. Fraser Cain of Universe Today has put together a list of worldwide Mars events going on this week. You can find the list here.

The RC Team was going to go out tonight and watch Mars, but our county is currently under a thunderstorm warning. (The power is flickering on and off here, so I must be brief.) I did, however, get the chance to watch Mars cross the sky at a campfire last night. It is unbelievable. If you haven't seen it yet, don't miss it!
