See Mars for yourself!
You can see Mars for yourself in the sky at night, without a telescope or binoculars. Look for a bright, reddish star (though it’s not really a star; it’s a planet! But it looks like a very bright, reddish star). It works better to look pretty late at night, usually. You may need to leave the city, if you live in a big city, to get the sky dark enough so you can see a planet.
I know it doesn’t really look that red in the picture, but Mars does look reddish when you see it in the sky!
At different seasons
For a more advanced project, try looking for Mars at different times of year. Is it always in the same part of the sky? Why do these changes happen?
