Astronomers are now looking forward to tomorrow night when the Moon and Mars will pass close to one another.
Tom Kerss, who hosts the Star Signs: Go Stargazing podcast, said: “The Moon, meanwhile, makes a close approach with Mars this week, forming a conjunction on Wednesday night as it passes to the south of the Red Planet among the faint stars of Pisces.”
How to see the Moon and Mars conjunction tomorrow:
The Waxing Gibbous Moon will pass to the south of the Red Planet tomorrow night (November 25).
The Moon will be easy to spot tomorrow as it will be about 80 percent illuminated in its Waxing Gibbous phase.
And although Mars will be much smaller and dimmer – resembling a bright star – it will remain visible until the end of the year.
