Mars At Its Closest Photograph

Here's a few pictures of Mars while at its closest point to Earth:

This is a photo by Alan Dyer of what Mars looks like from Earth in an overexposed photograph. Check out how much brighter it is than Orion!

Hubble released this image yesterday of Mars at its closest point to Earth. Great time for Mars astrophotography!

It's been a great time for Mars photographs! Any reader photos would be welcome, just e-mail them to rick.tiffini[at]
