an old Mars article

Inside the DAO Star Maps booklet from Donna, I found a newspaper article on Mars. Positioned in the Sickle of Leo, reaching opposition on February 11.

Mars in the news

The subtitle suggests this predates 2003. Using Stellarium, I determined this was the 1995 apparition of the red planet. I suspect the article (from page D8) was written in February '95.

The piece is by Martin Beech, noted as "a London-based freelance science writer." Perhaps this article is from the London Free Press.
