A Cosmic Lineup
August 4, 2015
There’s been so much exciting information about Pluto coming in from the New Horizons flyby, but what about the planets a little closer to home?
On Friday, August 7th, stars Pollux and Castor of the Gemini constellation will line up with Mars, which will be visible to the naked eye around dawn.
For more news about this week’s night sky, check out this National Geographic link and be sure to read The Mighty Mars Rovers by Elizabeth Rusch that documents the enterprising and exciting adventures of rovers Opportunity and Spirit as they search for signs of life-supporting water on the red planet.
