Mars on the move, 6/23

From our perspective on Earth, Mars is moving through the constellation Leo approaching the bright star Regulus. In the image above, Mars is to the lower right of Regulus. Saturn is to the upper left of Regulus. Can you notice that the color of Mars is ruddy? Keep looking over the next two to three weeks to see Mars pass Regulus, then Saturn.

Such is our view from Earth ...
