Weather of Arabia - It is observed in the skies of the Arab world, about an hour after sunset today, Friday, June 2, 2023. Mars is in front of the cluster of scattering stars, as if it is inside it in a phenomenon seen through monitoring devices.
And the Astronomical Society in Jeddah revealed in a report that when directing the binoculars or a small telescope with a wide field of view towards the red planet, it will appear surrounded by many stars, and it is also an opportunity to clarify the movement of Mars across the sky by observing a site for this cluster in the following nights.
The hive or hive cluster is one of the closest star clusters open to the sun, although not all of them are seen using small telescopes. However, this cluster is packed with about 1000 stars, of which about 300 are sun-like stars. At least two of those stars in the cluster revolve around planets. And we can imagine how amazing the night sky would be on a planet in the middle of a star cluster.
Since the mulch can be seen easily in a dark location with the naked eye as it appears as a blurry patch, the mulch has been known since ancient times by different names in different cultures, including the "beehive" because it resembles a swarm of bees.
Mars is currently far from Earth, which means even telescopes won't provide much surface detail, but it's glowing in shades of orange and red, which is one of the best parts about Mars. Yet this event is not so much about individual things as about their interaction.
