DOn Tuesday night, the red planet will be directly opposite the Sun on the celestial vault. The Earth will therefore be located between Mars and the Sun, offering a configuration that will show Mars larger in telescopes.
This phenomenon of opposition will cause Mars to momentarily become brighter than Jupiter.
The Montreal Planetarium reports that astronomy enthusiasts will have the chance to see Mars pass more than 50 degrees above the horizon, a much more enviable position for its observation than during the last opposition in 2018.
Mars will then be visible from dusk to dawn every October night.
Last Tuesday, October 6, the planet Mars was closest to Earth, at a distance of 68 million kilometers.
