    Just in case somebody missed the news, and is interested, Mars is making it's closest approach to the Earth in 57,000 years at 5:51 a.m today (Wednesday) and will be the bright center of the firmament for another week.

    Here's a link to one of the many articles written about it lately.

    Yeah, I saw it with my fiancee. We went with Ia and her significant other. The UCF telescope had an awesome view of it. Incredible.
