    You should've seen the moon here the night before last. Bright orange! So bizarre.. So captivating..
    I spotted when I looked down the valley towards the town center. And it blended in perfectly with the lights of the city. Just as bright, and with the same orange tinge. -Amazing!

    Would've been a perfect picture, had my camera been a whole lot better and about three times as expensive!

    So that was Mars! Pretty awesome.

    Yes, KittenCeleste, I agree - and in central Fl. the clouds surrounding it made it look like an astral highway; a scene hard to forget.

    Long live NASA



    Explanation: Have you seen Mars lately? As Earth and Mars near their closest approach in nearly 60,000 years on August 27, the red planet has begun to appear dramatically bright and show interesting details through telescopes and binoculars. Although not yet visible at sunset, Mars can be seen rising increasingly earlier in the evening. Once above the horizon, Mars is easy to spot, as it sports a distinct orange-red hue and it is the brightest object in the sky after the Sun, the nearby Moon, and Venus. After Earth overtakes Mars in their respective solar orbits, Mars will be visible right from sunset, although its historic brightness will then begin to fade. Pictured above, Mars was captured rising in the south east next to Poodle Rock in Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada, USA.
