Mars will be at its closest distance to Earth in 15 years tonight (Jul 31), wrapping up a memorable month for stargazers.
 
And we may never see the Red Planet so near for another 269 years.
 
The Red Planet will be 57.6 million kilometers from the earth, offering the clearest and brightest views since 2003.
 
The local stargazers are invited for a camp to witness the Red Planet from 7 pm to 10 pm tonight at the Colombo Campus grounds.
