NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationHuntsville, AL – 35.8 million miles is definitely not what most of us would consider “close.” But in planetary terms, close is definitely relative! On July 31st, Mars will be 35.8 million miles from Earth, which is the closest it has been to Earth in 15 years. What does this mean for sky watchers?

It means the Red Planet will appear super bright, and with its orange-red color, will be hard to miss in the nighttime sky. From July 27th-30th, the point in Mars’ orbit will come closest to Earth, and will be closest to Earth before sunrise Eastern Time on July 31st.

Mars is the fourth planet from the sun. (NASA)
