If you read this in time (Sunday night), go outside and check out the Moon and Mars-- they're very close together. In fact, for some parts of the extreme northwest US and parts of Canada, the Moon passes in front of Mars!

I just saw the fat full Moon rising, and it's beautiful. I'll go out again in a little while when it's higher and see how close together the two are.

Update: If it's cloudy where you are, BABloggee James mentioned in the comments below that he got a pretty shot he got of them.
