brilliant Mars (Bradford)

Noted the dark sky as I stepped onto the porch. A few clouds. Spotted Cygnus in the east, Lyra above. Altair and Tarazed. Faint Cassiopeia. Turned south. Wow! Mars was incredibly bright and richly hued. Fantastic. On fire! Fairly close to Acrab or β (beta) Scorpii.

Everything was dim from train platform. More clouds.


Didn't notice Saturn...
