It’s coming! Must be patient though. Mars dazzles in its opposition window, rivaling Venus and brighter than Jupiter. And it will be ridiculously close to Earth in 2018, around 35 million miles away. To have an opportunity to view a planet so near…well let’s just say it will be more spectacular than any eclipse!
