          The Red Planet is about to be spectacular!
        This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars in an encounter that
        will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in
        recorded history. The next time Mars may come this close is
        in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on
        Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be
        certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth
        in the Last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as
        60,000 years before it happens again.

        The encounter will culminate on August 27th when
        Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and
        will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in
        the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9
        and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. At a modest
        75-power magnification

        50d3a39.jpg50d3a48.jpg

        Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye.
        Mars will be easy to spot. At the
        beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10p.m.
        and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m.

        By the end of August when the two planets are
        closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its
        highest point in the sky at 12:30a.m. That's pretty
        convenient to see something that no human being has
        seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at
        the beginning of August to see Mars grow
        progressively brighter and brighter throughout the
        month.
