Mars At Opposition

Mars reaches opposition on October 13th, making this the ideal time for observing! Opposition is when the Earth passes directly between a planet and the Sun. This coincides with the planets closest approach to Earth, providing an excellent opportunity for great views in a telescope.

On the 13th Mars will have an apparent size of 22.3 arcseconds, making this an exciting opportunity. The next time Mars will appear larger than 20 arcseconds during opposition is in 2033, so get your cameras ready for imaging during this close pass!

We've selected some useful gear for imaging and observing Mars during opposition, as well as at other times:
