Evening Star

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows one of the evening stars in our night sky: Mars. "Evening star" is a leftover when the planets were tagged as Evening Star or Morning Star when they appeared in one part of the night or the other. No, it won't become as big (or bright) as the Moon, but it is quite a nice sight to behold.
