Watch the Moon and Mars dance together in the sky this week, and you’ll see the moon pass the Red Planet by the weekend.
The Moon will rise a little at 9 p.m. Thursday evening. Mars will follow a little after 10 p.m..
The Moon will be near Mars on Thursday. By Saturday night, the pair will be nearly on top of each other. By Sunday night, you’ll find the Moon below Mars.
Since the pair will be by each other each night, the moon can help you identify Mars now so that you can enjoy it in the weeks to come.
