Mars makes closest approach to Earth in 15 years

Previous the great opposition of Mars was on 28 August 2003. NASA said that won't happen again until 2287. Another close approach won't happen until September 11, 2035, when Mars will be 35.4 million miles away. It will be visible high in the sky on the right side of the moon at around midnight. Various sources have said that if we are going to make a legitimate attempt to even land on Mars, we'll need a base on the Moon to act as a form of supply depot. It means that if you have clear skies where you live, go outside on the overnight hours of July 30th or early morning hours of July 31st and look up.

Mars will be closer to Earth this month.

If you do, you'll get to see Mars up close for the first time since 2003, when it last made an approach like this. But if you slept through the whole event, don't worry!
