Mars has been unusually close to Earth lately, and is spectacularly bright and red in the eastern evening sky. :cheerful:

I haven't been able to see it as it's been overcast and still hazy from the smoke from the fires. I wish I could though!

Maybe it's getting closer for an invasion? :D

@ ESS: Mars won't be particularly bright again until sometime in 2020.
