Look up in the sky...

Go outside tonight and look at the beautiful full moon.  This will be the largest full moon of the year, which is amazing to look at on its own.  Now, did you notice the reddish star to the left of the moon?  Well that's no star, it's a spacestation Mars!  You can tell that its a planet, rather than a star, because it doesn't flicker like stars do.  This is the best view we'll have of Mars until 2016.
 
I really need a telescope...
