By mid-August, Mars will become fainter as Mars and Earth travel farther away from each other in their orbits around the Sun, according to NASA. Nearly the entire surface of Mars, which will see the earthlings will be lit by the Sun, since the planet will reflect the sun's rays vividly. The minimum distance from the Earth to Mars is about 33.9 million miles.

According to a report from NASA, Mars will look 3 times larger as the planet's orbit brings it closer to Earth than it's been in 17 years.

No need to despair-Mars will be a little closer than it is tonight on September 15, 2035-not as close as in 2003, but plenty close, according to Universe Today.

Mars comes at opposition at an average interval of two years and two months when the planet comes close to the Earth and becomes brighter, the Ministry of Earth Science said in a statement.

Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) would be vital to do this, but they are not present on Mars in high enough quantities to provide any significant greenhouse warming, said Dr Bruce Jakovsky. But, there will be another Mars close encounter in October 2020 when the distance between Mars and Earth will be 38.6 million miles.

If you see a blazing red light in the sky tonight (July 31) don't panic.
