Mars was spectacular. It was a jewel in the sky. Even though it was slightly hazy (I could only see a few stars) Mars was bright enough that it was causing the lens-flare effect in my eye agains the black sky, which is why it looked like a jewel to me.
It will be pretty close for a few weeks, so you haven't really missed it.
Is superb and free, it shows the night sky and is very easy to use if you are having trouble finding mars or any other planet. Blah blah blah.
