Astronomers have revealed that Mars will be within a close range of our planet Earth on July 25 - fifteen years after its closest brush with Earth. Instead, they have elliptical, or egg-shaped, paths with orbits that change as a result of gravitational tugging.
It will pass within 35.8 million miles from Earth.
Mars will be at its brightest appearance since 2003 when Mars made its closest approach to Earth in nearly 60,000 years. "This is one of the largest weather events that we've seen on Mars", since spacecraft observations began in the 1960s, said Michael Smith, a scientist at NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center.
So what's the big deal about the close approach? "If Earth and Mars followed perfectly circular orbits, opposition would be as close as the two planets could get". Stargazers can see the red planet by looking south after sunset.
