On the night of December 24, our planetary neighbor will shine in the night sky brighter than any star.

Story here Warning: Copy of story may be TOO NERDY for some!

Look for it near the moon. I don't have more information than that. When it gets dark, go outside, look up, and search for something red and twinkling. That's Mars.

If you're as nerdy as I am, this is very exciting. If you are less nerdy than I am, please don't attempt to give me a swirly. If you are more nerdy than me, the ones with long hair, soft skin, and no pimples are called "women".

I love astronomy. I read my wife's college astronomy books - for no reason. I also had an interactive star chart (real time) on my last computer. [/nerd]

If you have a pair of binoculars (even a weak pair) it will look even more impressive. When its close like that, its AMAZING what you can see with a $50 telescope from Walmart.

Winnah!

Casey has 2 points.

10 points are worth one Silver Star.

3 Silver stars are worth one Gold Spiral.

2 Gold Spirals are worth 1 Platinum coin.

1 Platinum coin is worth nothing.

Well done!

Sorry, I took my own thread off-topic. Getting back...

How many of us will be looking to the skies to view Mars? Do you have a telescope? If so, can you take pictures to share in this thread?
