The next few weeks are a really great time to see Mars. On April 8th Mars, Earth and the Sun are collinear and April 14th is the night that Mars will be closest to the Earth (for this orbit) so if you have a telescope now is a good time to get it out. Look east for Mars after sunset. There will also be a full moon and lunar eclipse on the 14th so the moon will be pretty cool looking too.
(Info from NASA, words from JKR, picture from me.)
Extra info: Jupiter is near Orion at the moment: follow a line from Rigel to Betelguese (Orion’s blue foot and red shoulder), and the bright thing in the sky is Jupiter.

It’s okay to be sad. You don’t owe anyone a performance of being okay when you feel like you’re falling apart. It isn’t your job to smile or hide your truth to make other people feel more comfortable. If it gets awkward, let it be awkward. If people try to silence your pain by telling you to get over it and cheer up because you’re no longer fun or you’re ruining the mood, you don’t have to push away your sadness. You have to honor your feelings and trust that you don’t need anyone’s permission or approval to feel what you feel. You don’t ever have to sacrifice your self care for the sake of people who only want you around when it’s easy and comfortable. Their discomfort isn’t about you — it’s about them and their own limitations, and no matter what they think or say, you deserve to give yourself permission to feel whatever it is you feel. You’re allowed to show your feelings honestly. You’re allowed to talk about your pain and reach out for support. You’re allowed to scream and wail and cry. You’re allowed to be sad.
