Mars getting closer

According to NASA, Mars is getting closer to the Earth every day. By late August, Mars will be within 34,646,418 miles of Earth which by some calculations is closer than it has been in 73,000 years. Some speculate that on August 27th, Mars will roughly be the same size as a full moon viewable by the naked eye. Make sure you check it out because it may be another 60,000 years before it gets this close again. No one alive today will every see this again!
