Why You Need to Check Out Mars This Weekend – Info Computing
Starting this weekend, you’ll be able to catch sight of Mars, big and bright—brighter than it has been since 2003. It’s not to be missed.
Specifically, the planet will be at its brightest from July 27 until July 30. All you have to do is go outside at night and look up to take it all in. According the Sky & Telescope, the Sun, Mars and the Earth will be lined up on July 31 at 3:50 a.m. EDT, which is when Mars will be its mos luminous. You should expect it to be very bright and reddish-orange colored.
If for some reason you’re not able to go outside or have clouds blocking your view, there are options to Mars-watch online, as well. You can stream it on Space.com, which went live July on 26 at 10 p.m. EDT. If you happen to be a member of Slooh, you can always directly go to their website and watch it on there.
And If you won’t be able to see it this weekend, Mars will keep shining until September—just not quite as intensely. And after that, you’ll have to wait until 2020 to see Mars at this level of brightness again.
