The sky of the world is witnessing this evening, Tuesday, the approaching planet of Mars from the Earth at the closest distance between them since 2003, and Mars will be only 62 million kilometers from the Earth, bright in the midnight sky and will be almost three times brighter than the star Sirius, what can be observed with the eye The abstract.
Dr. Ashraf Tadros, former head of the astronomy department at the National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research, said that both Earth and Mars revolve in elliptical orbits around the sun.
Tadros explained to Masrawy, today, Tuesday, that the Earth is the third planet in order away from the sun, and Mars is the fourth planet, so the distance between them is not fixed, sometimes it is large and at other times it is small according to their position in orbit, and the distance between them today will reach 62 million km Almost.
And Tadros continued: “The closest distance to Mars in relation to Earth was in 2003, and it is rightly considered the smallest actual distance that Mars can reach far from Earth, as the distance between them was only 56 million km.”
He added that this phenomenon makes Mars shine with a noticeable brightness in the sky, and it is seen with the naked eye without the need for telescopes, noting that it is a natural phenomenon, as all the planets happen to approach and move away from the earth, and the phenomenon does not have any damage to Earth or humans.
Dr. Muhammad Gharib, head of the Sun Department at the National Institute for Astronomical and Geophysical Research, called on astronomers to enjoy seeing Mars approaching Earth, today, Tuesday, in an astronomical phenomenon that has been the closest to Earth since 2003.
Gharib explained to Masrawy that the benefits of the phenomenon are to regulate the orbits of the planets around the sun, especially the Earth’s orbit around the sun, and to make sure of the rates of these orbits, in addition to a better enjoyment for astronomers of Mars approaching the Earth on the telescope, as the phenomenon benefits celestial mechanics. (Orbits) in adjusting the orbits of planets around the sun, including planet Earth.
He pointed out that the phenomenon has no damage to the globe, as the planets travel in their orbits and approach the Earth normally and there is nothing new in it.
