It looks to be a beautiful night so we'll be gathering at the usual place - the Meadow Parking lot in Ward Pound Ridge Reservation in Cross River. As always, you're welcome to bring a telescope or look through our members' scopes. See you at sunset!
This month Mars is at opposition - opposite the Sun from our point of view here on Earth. It's also the closest opposition in years. So this is a perfect opportunity to view the Red Planet. The website i09 has an explanation of the orbital mechanics between Earth and Mars and a guide to viewing Mars. You can find it here.
