Check this!!

Find where Mars is from wherever you are with Star Gazer App…download from Google Play, enter your location, latitude and Longditude (Nottingham UK, 52N57, 1W10) and if you like check it’s working by first finding the Moon.

Tonight, Mars is below the horizon at 1am so there would be no point trying to find it with a telescope!! Not that you would see the Curiosity vehicle anyway!!!

It’s fun to know which direction Mars (and lots of other Planets and Stars) are though, and be able to identify them!!
