  • Mars is now the closest to Earth than it has been in 15 years

In addition, while we have somewhat of an abundance of Carbon dioxide and greenhouses gasses on Earth, there isn't enough on Mars.

The planet will remain bright for several weeks, and you can also view the planets Saturn, Jupiter and Venus in a "long arc across the sky from east to west" shortly after sunset.

Although Mars reached its closest point in 15 years when most of us were still asleep at around 3:50 a.m. ET, there's no need to worry.

One popular public viewing spot was the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, where Mars was visible with the naked eye as a bright orange spot in the sky, according to a live broadcast held to mark the celestial event.

"These data have provided substantial new information on the history of easily vaporised (volatile) materials like Carbon dioxide and H2O on the planet, the abundance of volatiles locked up on and below the surface, and the loss of gas from the atmosphere to space", said Christopher Edwards of Northern Arizona University in the US. Around the time of opposition, a planet is at its closest distance to Earth for a given year.

On Friday, Mars, Earth and the sun were lined up in the sky. This is probably the reason is not only the summer storms in the Northern hemisphere, but also the formation of bright clouds near the North polar region as the consequences of the fading hurricanes.

This infographic shows the various sources of carbon dioxide on Mars and their estimated contribution to Martian atmospheric pressure. Unlike Earth, Mars' more elliptical orbit has a greater influence on its seasonal changes.

Another close encounter like 2003's will not happen until the year 2287. 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.

Astronomers are interested in Mars' travel path because it helps decide the best times for spacecraft to launch.

Saturn's portrait is the first image of the planet taken as part of the Outer Planet Atmospheres Legacy (OPAL) project.

Mars earthlings always been considered one of the most mysterious planets in the Solar system. The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland, conducts Hubble science operations.
