Today’s sketch of the planet Mars is by Klaus Brasch. Mars spends this Memorial Day weekend near Leo’s luminary, Regulus. (To find Mars and Regulus in your night sky, be sure to check out’s StarDome.)

To learn more about astronomical sketching, Astronomy magazine subscribers can access my video "Sketching from the telescope" and read Glenn Chaple's Observing Basics column "Sketching 101."
