in sorcerer's stone, the book, when hagrid, the trio, neville, and malfoy are in the forbidden forest for detention, the centaurs keep saying "mars is bright tonight". was that ever elaborated on or explained in real life? like did it ever have any significance in the book/series?

indeed; Firenze touched on it when he taught divination 5th year.
“In the past decade, the indications have been that Wizard-kind is living through nothing more than a brief calm between two wars. Mars, bringer of battle, shines brightly above us, suggesting that the fight must break out again soon.”
