Mars visible from Denver tonight

Among the twinkle of stars in the Denver night sky tonight (April 8, 2014) a red light will stand out ten times brighter than any of its celestial costars. It’s our neighboring planet Mars showing strong in the night as the sun, Earth and Mars will align in an almost perfectly straight line making the red planet visible to the naked eye even in urban areas like metro Denver. This planetary event happens only once every 26 months so if you miss it tonight the planets won’t be in opposition again until 2016.
