HIGHLIGHTS for MARS 2008

Opposition was reached on 24th December 2007 at declination +26° 44′. Near the Gemini / Taurus constellation border, Mars crosses this on 1st January 2008, and subtending about 15.8 arcsec. Although this is nowhere near the favourable oppositions seen in 1999 and 2003, where the maximum reached more than 27 arcsec, some features will be seen on the disk even in 15cm. Larger apertures now doubt will take advantage, of Mars for several weeks surrounding this date and into the first month and a half of 2008.
