On Aug. 27, 2003, Mars will be less than 34.65 million miles (55.76 million kilometers) away -- closer to our planet than itís been in about 73,000 years. The view will be stupendous

I am getting my Celestron 8 and my camera ready for action, anyone else has a telescope?

I use to have a cheapie scope, it got burnt up in the fire. /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif I'm a very inexperienced astronomer. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif I enjoy looking at the stars an planets wondering what has and will happen. Our galaxy is way out on the edge of the universe if I remember right. Were in the dark so to speak, well I am anyway. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Mrs. DG here...
Here is another cool website that shows you where to see the space station and satellites, as well as planets and stars.
