NASA Scientist Visits KiwiMars Crew

Mars is currently setting shortly after the Sun in the Southern Hemisphere, making it very difficult to spot. Click here to find Mars in the night sky with the AstroViewer sky chart (you will need to do this before it disappears over the horizon at sunset!).
To whet your appetite, here is a delightful poem about Mars, written by Trevor Anders when he was just 10 years old.

He shines in red in all his glory,
This story is how the earth came to be,
Nergal was his Babylonian name;
