A Rare Alignment of Sun, Earth, Moon, Mars—and the Human Spirit

Source: Discover Magazine

Jim Green, director, Planetary Science D
Tonight when you look up at the sky—and I strongly urge you to do so—you can participate in three different kinds of amazing alignments. One will produce a total lunar eclipse, as Earth’s shadow sweeps across the moon. One will produce the best view of Mars in more than 6 years, as the Red Planet makes its closest approach to Earth (technically that moment happened at 8:53AM EDT, but you couldn't have seen Mars then anyway). Both of t ...

BMI #1 Party For "Hey Pretty Girl" By Kip Moore
No, fair citizens of Hawaii, the US government hasn't increased the level of psychoactive drugs in your water supply: That really is a flying saucer that just flew past your window at three times the speed of sound. Dubbed the Low Density Supersonic Decelerator, NASA is hoping that this flying saucer is the secret to eventually landing larger payloads on other planets -- such as sending a human exploration party to Mars, along with plenty of sup ...

Mars Is Closer To Earth Than It Will Be Until 2016: Here's How To See It

Source: The Huffington Post: UK Edition

Right now Mars is making its closest approach to Earth since 2007 and until at least 2016. And while that event will not signify the end of days, it might look quite neat in the Northern Hemisphere sky, if you can find it. Luckily it's not that hard. The bright red planet will be an obvious target in Virgo, rising as soon as it gets dark in the southern sky. Here's a handy guide to seeing th ...

Mars is at its brightest in 6 years

Source: The Huffington Post: Canada Edition

Go outside tonight and you may get your best view of the planet Mars in years. Tonight marks the "opposition" of Mars, when the Earth passes between Mars and the sun, bringing the two planets toward their closest approach within their orbits — something that only happens every 26 months. That will make Mars look like an unusually bright orange dot in the sky — almost 10 times brighter than the brightest stars, NASA says. Mars should be easy for you to sp ...
