Earth and Mars will be just 35.8 million miles apart this Tuesday. The image on the left, taken on May 12, 2016, shows a clear atmosphere. Because of the close proximity, the planet also appears brightest in the sky. In the evening, half-an-hour after sunset, looking towards the sky opposite direction to sunset, one can spot planet Mars between East and South East direction.
He said general public can spot the Mars for many weeks easily with naked eye after sunset.
For about two months between July 7 and September 7, Mars will glow even brighter, outshining Jupiter and earning the title of the fourth-brightest object in Earth's sky after Venus, the moon, and the sun.
By mid-August, Mars will lose its brightness, the planet and the Earth will be removed from each other, moving in their orbits around the Sun.
According to astrophysicists, the axial tilt of Saturn, at 27 degrees explains the change of seasons and atmospheric activity. This may be responsible for a string of bright clouds visible near the northern polar region that are the remnants of a disintegrating storm. Also these photos were taken of the ring system at its maximum angle relative to the earth's axis.More news: Zimbabwe soldiers clash with opposition supporters as ruling party wins majority
This is called terraforming - altering a planet to make it more like Earth.
This infographic shows the various sources of carbon dioxide on Mars and their estimated contribution to Martian atmospheric pressure. Its closest and most distant points from the Sun vary by 19 percent (as opposed to 3 percent for Earth). But now, a new study in Nature Astronomy suggests that with current technology, transforming the Red Planet into a verdant oasis would actually be impossible.
This is the first picture of Saturn in the framework of the project Outer Planet Atmospheres Legacy (OPAL).
One of the proposed methods of pumping more Carbon dioxide into the red planet's atmosphere is by bombing the planet's poles.
The Hubble Space Telescope turned toward Saturn roughly a month before it came in opposition on June 6, according to an official report. The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland, conducts Hubble science operations.
