According to space experts, we can have a glance of the red planet very easily today (on Monday). They are of the opinion that it can be best viewed after midnight when it reaches the highest elevation. The adventure aficionados can see Mars rising in the east when the sun is setting in the west.

According to scientists, Mars will be closest to Earth (at about 54,400,000 miles) on April 14 again.

This celestial event, when the two planets (Earth and Mars) lie nearly in a straight line with respect to the Sun, occurs after every 26 months.

The next Mars event will happen in 2016, when the red planet will be even closer to the Earth. Experts call April as the best month for having rare glimpse of Mars.
