    Resized Image for magento article

     

    2018 truly has been a wonderful year for astronomy, specifically planetary astronomy! And our nearest neighbour, the Red planet Mars, takes centre stage this July. Keep an eye out for it in the night sky as it approaches opposition, it is expected to overtake Jupiter in brightness and will be one of the brightest objects in the night sky.

    Mars will reach opposition on 27th of July when it will appear larger and brighter, perfect for studying the polar ice caps or the surface detail of the planet (known as albedo markings) caused by the movement of surface dust on Mars. If all that sounds a bit too technical, you could always just enjoy a close encounter with Mars
