Mars is in opposition tonight, that means it's aligned with the sun and the Earth. Because of that, the red planet appears ten times brighter than the brightest star.
It's a neat sight to see, that happens every 26 months.
Mars rises in the east just after sunset, and will set in the west around sunrise Wednesday.
