Taurus has two eyes
Taurus now has two burning red eyes. The steadily brightening Mars is now positioned near the red star Alderbaran to make it look as if the majestic bull has two eyes (click on image to elarge it for a better view). . Mars moves away over the next few days, but if you are up at 5:30 am look to the north for a very nice sight.
