Watch The Skies! The Moon And Mars Are Aligning This Friday
Grab your binocular astronomy lovers! The Moon and Mars are aligning this Friday and you can watch it happen all over the UAE.
This Moon will align with Mars on Friday right before dawn at 3:00 AM to 4:00 AM. The Red Planet will come as close to 1°03’ to the Moon, so it can’t be seen with a telescope.
