USA: Mars makes its closest approach for a decade

Footage shows the viewing of Mars' close approach to Earth from the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California, on Tuesday. Mars has made its closest approach to Earth in 15 years, just after it reached opposition with the Sun. The Red Planet appeared especially big and bright in the night sky as it was at a distance of 35.8 million miles (57.6 million kilometres). Budding astronomers... Еще will have to wait until October 2020 for the next close approach. In 2003, Mars was closer to Earth than at any point in the last 60,000 years. Mandatory Credit: NASA TV
