im in the mid west and was just out side and looked up at the moon and seen a red tented star. i havent really payed attention to the stars and was
wondering what it was? was it a planet or is it a star?
it clearly has a read tent to it and when you hold your hand up to the moon its about 7 fingers to the east of the moon. if my camera was worthy i
would take a pic of it, but its not.
The one closest to the moon tonight is mars. Mercury, Venus , and Jupiter were all visible in the western sky after sunset. Mars and the moon were
rising at the same time. Mars is at opposition right now so it is the brightest it's been in a while.
