Marvelous Mars--So Close To Us
We stood in awe and observed bright Mars hanging low in the Western sky. This morning I had received an email stating Mars wouldn't be this close to Earth again until the year 2016 and never in our lifetime would we observe Mars so close.
Our family felt grateful to experience such rare beauty.
What a day for the National Democratic Convention to begin.
