Wednesday Explorers Club ~ Mars-watching

credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

This is going to be a great year for watching Mars. Over the next few months the red planet will get brighter in the sky - and by July it could outshine Jupiter. It will, says Deborah Byrd of Earth and Sky, look like a "red dot of brilliant flame" in the night sky. Check the sky maps at Earth and Sky over the next few months to follow Mars.
