Mars Will Be Close To Earth For The Next Few Weeks


Business Insider reports that Mars will look brighter in the night sky over the next six weeks than it has appeared in 15 years. That's because the red planet will be at its closest point to Earth since 2003 throughout June and July. This as our planet passes between Mars and the sun. According to The Weather Channel, on July 31 Mars will be at its brightest. The planet will be 35.8 million miles away from Earth. Mars will be easily visible to the naked eye throughout July.
