It's not a bad night when you've seen a nice, steady image of Mars, even if it's not the best opposition ever.  But it's still worth the look, because the next really good opportunity won't come around for another 2 years or so.  And like par for the course playing golf on an otherwise beautiful day, if Mars is at opposition and steady, what more can you ask for when the conditions are right? 

The Nightlight

This blog includes what to see in the night and daytime skies, thoughts on telescopes, binoculars, and other astronomy observing accessories and equipment, plus my own occasional notes on objects I've seen and observed. Oh, and the random theater or other "my take on life" post. In other words, there is always something interesting. Check it out.
