Hi All,

Since things are a little slow today, I thought I'd post this
off-topic astronomy tidbit. The moon's current close proximity
to Mars (at least for the next several hours) may allow observers
to locate Mars in daylight with binoculars. For instance, at 5pm
PDT Tuesday (6pm MDT), Mars is located just 2 degrees to the
upper right of the Moon. --Rob
