    look to the left the orange red light is Mars - it will become brighter and more red as it climbs in the sky. and will get better over January

    I popped outside to have a look but it's really cloudy and I can't see the moon.

    I'll keep looking until I spot it and see if I can see Mars

    Ha - just spottd it.

    We have a telescope ( only a cheapie from Walmart) but we're going to go and have a look through it.

    Arun uses the telescope as a clothes hanger so it will make a change for it to get some proper use!!

    Thank you so much for letting us know

    Me and eldest son had a look out the landing window and saw Mars,
    We hadn't been home long and on our way home we saw the moon rising, that was a lovely site as the moon looked so big against the back drop of houses and fields.

    Now we have a garden we most sort out our telescope.

    *BUMP* if you get a chance tonight between the clouds Moon and Mars will be close again - its really very obvious - and you are looking at a little rocky world with 2 little rovers pootling about on it ( well one is and one is limping a bit TBH)
