Grab your hat and mittens and head for the planetarium!

I received this announcement through my local homeschool group.

David Leake of the Parkland Planetarium made this announcement

The Champaign-Urbana Astronomical Society will be at the Staerkel
Planetarium this Sunday from 7-9pm to do some Mars viewing with club
telescopes. Mars comes relatively close to the Earth every 26 months
and this will be the closest we'll see Mars until the year 2018.
Naturally anything that's close is bright and looks large through the
telescope. The event is free but weather permitting. The telescopes
will be outside the planetarium and to the west, so dress warm! We're
not sure what to expect this time (with it being colder) but we
entertained well over 1000 people in Meadowbrook Park during the last
close approach of Mars in 2003. The planetarium will be open as a "warm
area," but no shows will be scheduled.
