see captionAugust 7, 2003: It's not every day you get to watch a planetary ice
but this month you can. All you need are clear skies, a backyard telescope, and
a sky map leading to Mars.
Actually, you won't need the sky map because Mars is so bright and easy to find.
Just look south between midnight and dawn on any clear night this month. Mars
is that eye-catching red star,
outshining everything around it. It's getting brighter every night as Earth
and Mars converge for a close encounter on August 27th.
Yes, it says,"Like Earth, Mars has seasons that cause its polar caps to wax and wane.
"It's late spring at the south pole of Mars," says planetary scientist Dave Smith of the
Goddard Space Flight Center. "The polar cap is receding because the springtime sun is
shining on it.""
So what's your point, that summer coming to the south pole of Mars is evidence that fossil
fuel burning is not warming the Earth??
