When You Wish Upon a Star (or planet) . . .

Today is the big “Mars Day”. Yes, the day when Mars will come its closest to Earth for 60,000 years – a mere 35 million miles away. Who cares if it still looks like a marble through the telescope – just like always. Apparently we are supposed to be able to see Mars with the “naked eye”. I can’t even see the Sun here in Lethbridge because of all the clouds and nasty smoke from the forest fires. I guess I’ll just have to wait another 60,000 years for this opportunity to pass again – hopefully there won’t be any forest fires nearby.
