Reading the Red Sox’ Stars
by Greg Cunningham, Blended Learning Specialist
- “I’m amazed you can see Venus with all the lights around Boston,” my friend Tyler commented as we walked back to the car after a Red Sox win at Fenway Park.
“That’s not Venus,” I assured him. “That’s Mars.”
“It can’t be Mars. It’s too bright to be Mars.”
“Actually, Mars is at its brightest point in 50 years right now. And the only time you can see Venus is right after sunset or right before sunrise. It’s too late for Venus.”
