I took I-70 on the way to Utah. There is a wildfire on Battlement Mesa just across I-70 from Rifle and Parachute. The whole area is incredibly smoky and there are signs along I-70 saying don't stop on the highway to look at the fire.

Speaking of Mars, here it is over my FJ Tuesday night in the Utah desert.

Nice. Apparently last week Mars was the closest that it will be to Earth for the next 269 years.

Was this what was causing the cool lights under your FJ? If it was, and they gave you a red suit, donít lose the instruction book!

If you notice in the photo the stars are pin points of light in sharp focus but Mars is a bit of an elongated blob. That's because it's so much closer than the stars it has a lot more relative motion than the stars do and moves enough during the 10 second exposure to appear blurry while the stars barely move and remain sharp.

I am leaving The GSM's tomorrow. The stars down here are BRIGHT and The Milky Way is clearly visible.
Oh well...
