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.
