Yes, I just saw it too.  At about 10 p.m. it was in the South-Eastern sky
somewhat low on the horizon.  When you see it you will know that it is Mars.  It
is much brighter than any star you've ever seen.  It was cloudy so I could only
see one star, and it was not nearly as bright as Mars.  

I also got to look at it through a neighbor's big 8 inch telescope (about the
size of a big watermellon) and I could make out the polar ice caps as a bright
spot.

You can find much better pictures on the internet. And nowadays real astronomers look on monitors anyway :-) - Heinz
