Mars & Antares, A Celestial Pairing in the Southwestern sky !
Go out and look to your Southwest at Dusk to see Planet Mars & Bright Red Giant Star Antares, aka Alpha Scorpio. You need a low unobstructed view to see them. They look very similar in color , a red orange. Mars is the one that is higher in the sky. They are only up for a short period of time, so go out after sunset, but before it gets dark, Take a look all weekend between 8:30pm and 9:00pm E.S.T. I captured this shot on 09-25-2014 above my Observatory Dome in Yellow Springs, Ohio.
