14-Aug-2018
Mars is currently at it's closest to Earth since 2003, and appears as a brilliant red star in the sky. Unfortunately it is also suffering from a global dust storm, slowly abating.

Mars is currently at it's closest to Earth since 2003, and appears as a brilliant red star in the sky. Unfortunately it is also suffering from a severe global dust storm, showing no signs of abating. This means even the polar ice caps are hard to see, let alone any surface features.
