Mars has been unusually close to Earth lately, and is spectacularly bright and red in the eastern evening sky.
I haven't been able to see it as it's been overcast and still hazy from the smoke from the fires. I wish I could though!
Maybe it's getting closer for an invasion?
@ Rooster: I hope it clears up soon... you wouldn't want to miss the Martian invasion.
@ Kninjanin: If you like looking at the night sky, take a look; Mars is really quite spectacular.
@ ESS: Mars won't be particularly bright again until sometime in 2020.
