Notice the beautiful red color of the Moon, again this is because the Moon being so low on the horizon it's moonlight has to travel through more of the Earth's atmosphere, particles in the atmosphere scatter the blues and allow the reds through to be enjoyed by us, the picture above illustrates this , the lower the Moon the deeper the red color.
This coming Sunday at 7:53pm edt the Phoenix Mars Lander will touch down on the Martian surface. The lander will hit the Martian atmosphere at around 13,000 mph, the use of parachutes and thrusters will slow it down to 5 mph in seven minutes to land on it's 3 legs, a very tricky and complicated procedure, less then 50% of powered landings are successful.
Notice on the above map the lander will be further north then any previous landers, hopefully will be able to gather ice water to perform various test to see whether or not it could have supported microbial life.
