The "Red Planet" Mars will be in prime position for viewing at the Jack C. Davis Observatory over the next week. Visitors are invited to the observatory at Western Nevada Community College on both Saturday, Oct. 29, and Saturday, Nov. 5, to view Mars and the night sky. Several telescopes will be available for public use, and evening hours will be extended to accommodate visitors.
Mars will be at its closest position to Earth, and the most ideal time to view is this Saturday evening. For the very best look at Mars, visitors should arrive after 8:30 p.m. For directions to the observatory, visit the Western Nevada Community College web site.
