But also, "around the time of opposition, a planet is at its closest distance to Earth for a given year", the United States space agency explained.

The Red Planet shines its brightest between July 27th and 30th as the Sun, Earth, and Mars all line up, with Earth sandwiched in the middle of the other two.

"The Red Planet will be at its brightest since 2003, when Mars made its closest approach to Earth in nearly 60,000 years since September, 24, 57617 BC", Dr Debiprosad Duari, director, Research & Academic, MP Birla Institute of Fundamental Research had said earlier this month.

Terraforming or creating a habitable environment on Mars, that would allow humans to explore it without life support, is still a far-fetched dream, say scientists who found that existing technologies are incapable of forming an Earth-like atmosphere on the red planet. Mars won't be that close to Earth until 2287, according to a NASA update.

"Mars is invading us tonight", said observatory director Ed Krupp.

He added that he would consider a visit to Washington but noted there must be "necessary conditions", without further explanation. Russian Federation and the United States have a stake in that, the whole word has a stake in that, in not starting an arms race.

If you do, you'll get to see Mars up close for the first time since 2003, when it last made an approach like this.

Transforming planets as a pre-cursor to colonisation is a staple of science fiction, and an aspiration for individuals including Elon Musk, whose company SpaceX uses images of terraforming Mars in its promotional material.

Mars will make its closest approach to Earth in 15 years on Tuesday. The distance between the Mars and the Earth was 34.6 million miles (55.7 million kilometers).

Although now gas shell of Mars consists mainly of carbon dioxide, it is too thin, on the surface of the planet could exist with liquid water. Because a Mars year and Earth year take different amounts of time, their orbits will soon desynch and the planets will separate.

The two stellar bodies will not meet again this close for another 17 years.

Aside from the gorgeous image of the entire planet, the space telescope also managed to capture six of Saturn's 62 known moons including Dione, Enceladus, Tethys, Janus, Epimetheus, and Mimas. Technically, in solar system talk, they are.

"It's the brightest thing in the sky right now, except for the sun and the moon, of course".

The next Mars close approach will be on 6 October 2020.
