Mars to glow brightly

Mars is set glow brightly. In fact scientists have announced that it is going to be the brightest its been in the last 20 years!

On Tuesday, 13 October, you’ll be able to see Mars at its brightest.

It’s predicted it won’t be as bright as this again until 2035.

This is due to Mars being closer to Earth than it has been in the last two years. Earth passes directly between the Sun and Mars once every 26 months. This is known as an ‘opposition’.

This ‘opposition’ will be extra special due to the orbits of Earth and Mars lining up to be at their closest to each other.
