Mars will make its closest approach to earth in 15 years on Tuesday, giving stargazers a great opportunity to see the Red Planet. Just look out for the big red dot.
In 2003, Mars and Earth were at their closest in almost 60,000 years, coming within 34.6 million miles of each other. Mars will still be more visible than normal for a while, but will become fainter as it travels farther from Earth during the planets' orbits around the sun.

The red planet is easily visible with the naked eye, but folks with a telescope may be able to see some details of the planet, including the planet's ice caps, according to AccuWeather.
Meanwhile, those in the Deep South, northern Plains and much of the West should have cloud-free conditions, leading to uninterrupted views of the red planet on the night that it reaches opposition.
However, there is a global dust storm obscuring the red planet that could continue through August and into September. On Mars, they can happen anywhere, and in large areas, said NASA.
To start with, on 27 July, something called a Mars opposition will happen, when Mars, the Earth and the Sun all directly line up.
