Mars Doubles in Brightness

09/23/2005 12:00 PM

Backyard astronomers are already tuning their telescopes. Between now and the end of October, Mars will double in brightness as the red planet moves closer to earth. On October 30th at 0319 Universal Time, the two worlds will be just 69 million km apart - their closest approach the next 13 years. If you don't have a telescope, you can probably get a nice view of Mars while taking the kids trick-or-treating.
