This Christmas Eve, Mars will be in Opposition, and at it's closest (Dec 18th) approach to the Earth in like a gazillion years. In fact, all during the month of Dec Mars will be prominant as hell in the night sky.

Cool. :drink:
what a coinkydink, I have been thinking about that all day
Did anyone know that there is a 1 in 75 chance that mars might be hit by an asteroid on January 30th 2008?
Recently Discovered Asteroid Could Hit Mars in January.
December 21, 2007

A recently discovered asteroid which passed close to the Earth in November, is now headed towards a very close passage by Mars in late January, and there is a small chance that it could hit that planet. The probability of a collision is only 1 chance in 75, but scientists are excited about the possibility. If it happens, the impact would occur on January 30, 2008 at around 10:55 UT (2:55 a.m. PST).

Could be one hell of a show.
