    Yeah i guess you're right:smile:
    It'd be even better if Mars covered half the sky on earth:smile:

    Way cool! Thanks Draco!...

    Actually, Mars is missing half its crust (the northern half)... who knows what else flew off when it was bombarded with a few objects, some of which were over 100k in size... within the last 100,000 years. I would imagine that our sky was filled with the results of that explosion for a while, back then. Not as pretty as a nice close up look at her, mind you!

    So... does 56,000,000 km closer mean we can knock a year or so off the time it takes to get there???
