This week, we can see Mars very closely so I and my son watched Mars.
From this picture, it is like dot. But as seeing from our naked eyes, it looked big,bright brown color.
I was very surprised to see this largeness of star. My son also liked this star.
I also used tablet app "Star map" to find Mars. It is very useful because we move my tablet towards stars and this app indicates a name of this star.
When I was a child, I used a real star map on a circuit plate. Ciuruiting map by date, time, I can find which stars was found in certain direction. Both is good tools for science lovers.
