Mars

Postby Lyric » Mon Oct 12, 2020 11:33 am

Mars will be in opposition Tuesday 13/10/2020 at 2320 UK, This means that the Sun, Earth and Mars are in a line and Mars is at it's closest for 26 months.
It is clearly visible to the ESE rising from dusk just the brightest thing in the sky. By midnight it is nearly overhead.
At the same time Jupiter and Saturn are visible to the SW.

No need to be lying on your back for hours to see these !
