The convergence of Mars with the Earth

The first way would involve ramping up the atmospheric pressure of Mars considerably so that humans could hopefully get by with a limited breathing apparatus.

The Red Planet will be 57.6 million kilometers from the earth, offering the clearest and brightest views since 2003.

Large telescopes in the University of Colombo will be open to the General Public on 31st July 2018 to watch Planet Mars as well as the most handsome planet Saturn till 10.00 p.m. Earth and Mars will be just 35.8 million miles apart this Tuesday. Additionally, gravitational pull of the planets within our solar system constantly affects the shape of their orbits, moving Mars' orbit even closer to the Earth. It will be 56.9 million kilometers away.

Mourinho's dark mood casts shadow over Manchester United
The 19-year-old joins Fred and Lee Grant as Manchester United's newest arrivals. It wasn't very impressive to say the least.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope photographed Mars on July 18, near its closest approach to Earth since 2003.

Mars comes at opposition at an average interval of two years and two months when the planet comes close to the Earth and becomes brighter, the Ministry of Earth Science said in a statement.

"The Red Planet will be at its brightest since 2003, when Mars made its closest approach to Earth in nearly 60,000 years since September, 24, 57617 BC", Dr Debiprosad Duari, director, Research & Academic, MP Birla Institute of Fundamental Research had said earlier this month. After rising, it stays up in the sky the entire night and starts setting in the west at a time when the sun rises in the east. This is what is happening on the early morning hours of July 31st.

Trump says willing to meet with Iran leaders 'any time'
One possible opportunity for the two leaders to meet would be during the United Nations General Assembly in late September. But Trump's remarks did represent a marked softening of tone from when he lashed out at Rouhani in a tweet a week ago.

A celestial phenomenon of this sort is expected to occur again in the year 2287.

Because of both planets' elliptical orbits and the length of time it takes each planet to make it around the sun, Earth's best views of Mars only arrive every 15 to 17 years. It will be shining brighter than Jupiter, which in general, shines as the brightest in the sky only after Venus. It has a very helpful atmosphere, which, being primarily Carbon dioxide with some nitrogen and argon and a few other trace elements, means that we can grow plants on Mars just by compressing the atmosphere. And on the red planet burst into a powerful dust storm, which eventually covered the southern hemisphere. You can also look through a telescope.

There are observational camps conducted by astronomers all over the world to observe this rare event.

Labour MP brands Corbyn a `defender of extremists´ as…
He told Channel 4 News: "I'm suggesting they would feel compelled, in large numbers, to a least consider moving, if not moving". Mr Austin is the second Labour MP to face possible suspension after an investigation was launched into veteran Margaret Hodge.

Good luck and happy viewing!
