An astronomical event that occurs every 15 years between planet Earth and Mars
The British Guardian newspaper reported that Mars will be closest to Earth in the next fifteen years, and on the sixth day of October, Mars will be 62 million kilometers from Earth.
Mars is currently located north of the equator, which allows it to be clearly seen from both hemispheres, through telescopes or other things.
Experts predicted that the planet would appear bright and clear and could allow the opportunity to see Jupiter and Saturn.
This phenomenon is according to the interpretation of experts that the Earth and Mars revolve in two different orbits around the sun, and through their rotation they approach each other at a certain point, which is the point that allows the red planet to be seen clearly from the surface of the earth.
This phenomenon was repeated before in 2003 and the distance between them was 55.7 million km, and in 2008 the distance between them was 57.6 million km.
