Today (April 8) is the best time of the year to spot and watch Mars!
The planet is at the point in its orbit where it is roughly closest to Earth, making it appear bigger and brighter. It’s visible almost all night, so if you have a chance, grab binoculars or a telescope and see Mars with your own eyes! The red planet appears as a ruddy shiny star in the constellation Virgo.
