In the coming months, Mars will be easily visible in the night sky. Join Steven Beyer and Joe Rao as they illustrate Mars’ place among the stars of the constellation Scorpius, and explain what happens during the Opposition of Mars, when the Red Planet and the Sun are on opposite sides of Earth. The hosts will also share updates and discoveries from recent Mars missions.
