Say Hello to Mars

July’s last week was a boon to Mars lovers. Mars, at its closest approach came at a distance of 35.8 million miles to Earth. It was hard to miss in the sky from July 27 to July 30. Its closest approach was July 31, 2018 around midnight. Some of our astrophotographers have taken amazing pictures of the event.
