Posted by CKL @ 10:51 PM PST

Today is Mars Day. Right now, Mars is closer to Earth than it's ever been in tens of thousands of years, there's a new moon tonight, Foothill Observatory just a few miles away is hosting a special viewing event, and I've invited eight friends out for some good old fashioned optical astronomy.

And what happens? The sky's full of clouds, of course. Can't see a blessed thing in the heavens.

I guess we'll try again later:

"Mars will remain a stunning nighttime attraction for weeks. Most sky watchers can see the planet, presently in the constellation Aquarius, in the southeastern sky soon after sunset, high overhead during the midnight hours and in the southwestern sky before sunrise."
