A Sight to See

The proximity of Mars to the full moon last night was strikingly beautiful. At about 11pm Central time the moon was up around maybe 75 degrees, with Mars very bright a few degrees almost directly below it, in position and proportion like a very bright jewel on a pendant below a very bright white face.
