Did anybody take note of how insanely bright Mars was during the third week of December? One glance toward the clear night sky and you’d be able to spot it in an instant. If you missed it, then just wait a few years and the orbits will cross again, but, then again, Mars might look totally different at that time since reports state that there is a 4% chance that an asteroid will impact the red planet on January 30th. Hopefully it’ll happen since that would make for some amazing revelations in that field and be exciting to boot.
