Mars gets closest to Earth on July 31: What is Mars' opposition?

The perihelic opposition happens when Mars is at the nearest point to the Sun in its orbit, which happened on July 27 in 2018 - the night of the lunar eclipse. At that time, the gap between the two planets was greater than it will be tomorrow.

Even though some water may have been discovered there, Mars has less than 1% of the atmospheric pressure of that on Earth.

One potential option of terraforming the Red Planet was to release the carbon dioxide trapped within the planet to thicken the atmosphere, keeping the planet warm enough to sustain liquid water, in exactly the same way greenhouse gasses build up on Earth.

Mars and the Earth will today come closer than they have for over a decade today. In this case, Mars appears opposite the sun, and is said to be in "opposition".

"Global dust storms - lasting for weeks or months - tend to happen during the spring and summer in the southern hemisphere, when Mars is closest to the Sun and heating is at a maximum to generate winds".

One way of doing this was to drop thermonuclear bombs at the planet's poles - an idea which had gained the backing of many experts including Elon Musk. The spectacle can be witnessed online on a YouTube live stream. At the time, Mars and Earth will be 38.6 million miles (62.1 million km) apart.
