Mars At It’s Closest For 15 Years

Firstly, many thanks for Maria Jahn who is a member on my Algarve Photo Fun Facebook Page, without her, I would have forgotten all about tonight.

Mars is at its closet approach to Earth since 2003 and earlier today was the peak of it. Tonight, its bright in the dark sky of the Algarve Hills. Even though it looks close, it’s still 57.6 million kilometers away!

I stepped outside to grab a quick shot of it, and yes I know, its just a red dot in the sky.
