About This Show

This Summer Mars will be a prominent object in the southern night sky, its bright orangey-red disk an easy object some way below the fainter stars of Pisces, the Fishes.

Spacecraft have shown us a bitterly cold, dry planet, with huge volcanoes, vast canyons, craters and ancient river valleys. Far from being a world where nothing ever happens, Mars has landslides, whirlwinds and great dust storms.

Fasten your seat belts for a trip to the Red Planet.
