Well, after looking again at the photo with the scientist, it does look a little yellowy/orangy compared to the other stars.
I have to see it again. Hopefully tonight.

Love that second image, Walter. I couldn't get my highpower binoculars to stay steady enough to see that image. It kinda looks like one of my eyes after a late chat session online.

This is one with PS processing by Kagaya.Meteorolite is too big compared to the Mars, I think. Btw, I saw a meteor acrossing the sky that night.

We've been very lucky here. Night after night Mars has been not just visible but has dominated the sky. Last night was the most beautiful of all: with a nearly full, bright moon, the rest of the stars couldn't be seen. But Mars was a bright as the moon and -- this was almost eerie, very exciting -- I could see (not just have to imagine) the vast distance between them. It was a startling moment.

Thanks, Tartarin. I became fascinated with Mars, going out to look at it every night. It looked pretty much the same every night, getting brighter as it got closer to earth. But every time I got some sort of joy out of it that I couldn't explain. What you said makes perfect sense!

(Love all the images here).
