Looking at the Skies: Mars comes in opposition

As per a report by The Washington Post, the "opposition" of Mars means it will be visible all night long, starting in the east post sunset and climbing across the sky before setting in the west around sunrise. Look to the eastern sky to see it rise at night.

Mars will appear very bright in the sky during this time as it's close to earth. Mars will be more splendid this year at resistance than it will be again until 2035.

When Mars and the sun align with the earth in the middle, the red planet is said to be in opposition. We're looking at you Queenslanders.

Mars is set to land close to Earth on Tuesday, October 6, but it's still a good time to catch a full month of binoculars and get a little visible.

"The race track model of the planetary orbits explains why".
