Last Chance to Get a Good Look at Mars Until 2012
On Thursday night, March 25, many people may look up at the sky and ask the question, “What’s that bright star next to the moon?”. That would be mars.

How to spot mars: Make sure the skies are clear. Mars will be the small red spot (it will be noticeable) next to the moon. I can not estimate in which hemisphere it will be seen better. One thing I can predict is that it won’t be as big as the moon. Be sure to have some sort of telescope.
