Although Mars is the second planet from the Earth, most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. People can rarely see it from earth before midnight. The planet was the closest it had ever been to the earth in 2003, but it was still barely noticeable without a telescope. Many people hope to visit Mars someday, but that may not happen in our lifetime.
Fortunately, you don’t need a high powered telescope or spaceship to visit Mars. I have compiled a list of a number of awesome pictures of the Red Planet.
