Mars, over the rooftops.

I took this picture last week - it's not very good, just taken on a digital camera with no tripod.

But although it was taken over the rooftops of Isleworth, full of street lights and houses, it is of Mars, which was at it nearest to us for a while.

I think you can make out that it's a planet rather than a star and, best of all, it's clearly red - from the Iron oxide dust (rust) that covers the surface of the planet.
