Mars & Earth move closer this month

MarsInteresting events this month for Science classes….

Beginning April 9 (AEST) Mars will be aligned in a straight line with the Sun and the Earth.

This year we’ll be closest to Mars on April 14, when we’ll be separated by 92 million kilometres – a lot closer than usual, but still well short of the 55 million kilometre absolute minimum.

Mars should be especially bright in the night sky that evening, shining nearly 10 times brighter than the average star.
