Mars

The sky is/was quite clear tonight for a change...the waning moon looking down from the east, and this bright planet, quite visibly red, slightly higher in the sky, chasing the constellations westward (or at least appearing to as we revolve contrawise) If only it wasn't so BLOODY COLD - I'm a wimp, I know, but i would get my telescope out but for the ambient temperature outside at the moment...I'll have to invest in some new thermals...
But cold air makes for crisp viewing, provided the cloud cover is light/absent...so I wont complain. Ah well, off to bed for me...
