On Approach

In today's Astronomy Picture of the Day: the planet Mars is making a "close" approach (conjunction) with us in the night skies. You'll need something more than a modest telescope to get a good view (and very steady skies), but see if you can get out there and catch a glimpse of the dark areas or the polar caps. Just beware of the regular hoax that circulates whenever Mars approaches.
