I want to observe the planet Mars. What do I do?

Viewing Mars

If you want to get the best view of Mars while it is at its brightest in over 59,000 years, head outside and search in the south-eastern sky. This summer you won't even need a telescope to capture details of the planet's surface. Just bring a pen and a sketchpad or a 35mm camera to capture the image for your scrapbook.
