video preview image

MEDFORD, Ore.– Tonight the Earth, Mars and Sun will all align in what is called the “Opposition.” This event happens about every two years and with clear skies in the forecast you will be able to see it all week! Look to the skies for a very bright orange dot, that’s Mars, and it’s about ten times brighter than normal. Tuesday is the peak of the event when Mars is at its brightest but you will be able to see the bright planet through the month of April.
