What is it?

On October 13, 2020 the relative position in the orbits of Earth and Mars around the sun treats us to its opposition, or closest approach to Earth. This a great opportunity if you are a stargazer or astrophotographer. Because of this opposition, the days leading up to and just after October 13 are prime days to view and photograph the Red Planet.
