    The planets don't move through the sky very fast.

    Mars will be in about the same part of the sky for the next couple of weeks and was there for the previous couple of weeks.

    The problem is Mars is only 1/2 as big as Earth, so it's a pretty small target.

    Scroll down on this page for some March Mars info:

    Haha trust me I know! I've been on the rifle range since last Thursday exposed to all the elements. Monday (22nd) all I had on was a t-shirt and a cammie shirt. I was FARRRREEEZZZING.

    Luckily tomorrow is the last day.

    At least your kiddos got to go enjoy it for a little while, give it a week and the weather will HOPEFULLY be nice.

    I know lol... It's hard though... I'm currently a full time student and single mom.. When we are home during the day, i have to keep the kids SILENT... We live with my parents and my dad works at home in the basement... the floors/ceilings and walls in this house are paper thin... So all these rainy days and sick days mean TONS of frustration for mommy! lol
