Tonight's Sky for September 30: Mars Sets 3 Hours After the Sun

Tonight, the Red Planet, which reached opposition back in April, will now be setting 3 hours after the Sun, meaning that Mars will be well placed for viewing in the South-Southwestern sky as the sky gets dark. To see Mars, look low in the Southwestern sky. That bright reddish 'star' is, in fact, the planet Mars.
