Earth's neighbour in the solar system was brightest from July 27 to 30, but it is expected to be visible throughout the night on July 31.
In 2003, Mars and Earth were the closest in almost 60,000 years at 34.6 million miles (55.7 million km) apart.
In 2003, Mars and Earth were the closest in almost 60,000 years - 34.6 million miles (55.7 million kilometers). The silver (red?!) lining to that, however, is that the dust reflects sunlight, making it even brighter. As Mars will be in the nearest position to the Earth, people can get the view from sunset until sunrise. Because a Mars year and Earth year take different amounts of time, their orbits will soon desynch and the planets will separate.
But, there will be another Mars close encounter in October 2020 when the distance between Mars and Earth will be 38.6 million miles.
One popular public viewing spot was the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, where Mars was visible with the naked eye as a bright orange spot in the sky, according to a live broadcast held to mark the celestial event.
Dreams of transforming Mars into a habitable long-term human colony are scientifically impossible with current technology, according to a NASA-sponsored study.
A high-powered telescope with a large lens (15cm to 20cm in size) is recommended, but even then clouds may obstruct the view.
The two planets will be just 35.8 million miles (57.6 million kilometers) apart on Tuesday.
It will be the year 2287 before it comes that close again, NASA reported. So, all the space enthusiasts, who are keen to watch this phenomenon, you need not worry.
There is presently a planet-wide dust storm on Mars, a phenomenon that is said to occur when the planet is closest to the sun in its orbit.
"Our results suggest that there is not enough Carbon dioxide remaining on Mars to provide significant greenhouse warming were the gas to be put into the atmosphere", said Dr Jakobsky from the University of Colorado and the lead author of the study, which was published in Nature Astronomy.
