This month and next Earth is catching up with Mars in the closest approach between the two planets in recorded history.

Next time this could happen may not be until 2287

Due to the way that Jupiters gravity tugs on Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be certain that this has not happened in the last 5,000 years - and it could be 60,000 years until it happens again!

On August 27th Mars will be within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and will be the brightest thing in the night sky aside from the moon. Mars will attain a magnitude of -2.9 and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide.

Mars should be easy to spot, at the beginning of August the red planet will rise in the East at around 10pm and will reach its azimuth at around 3am.

By the end of August when the 2 planets are closest Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its highest point at 12.30am.

This will be the only time anyone living at this time will ever see this spectacle - so spread the word!!!
