Mars amongst the Nebula
While we are waiting breathlessly for comet 2006/P1 McNaught, Mars is slowly gliding towards the Lagoon Nebula in the morning sky. Over the mext few mornings, watching Mars approach the Lagoon Nebula will be beautiful, cumulating on the 16th, when Mars is in the heart of the Nebula. Best viewed with binoculars.
