The planets are literally aligning.
So make sure to look from your phone and into the night sky this week and next because there's a lot going on with celestial bodies in our galaxy.
Here's a rundown of what to watch out for in the night sky in your Neck of the woods.
This Friday, July 27th, a large swath of our planet will witness the longest total lunar eclipse of this Century, when the sun, the earth, and the moon will line up creating the perfect conditions for a blood moon.
This event will cause the earth to cast a reddish shadow onto our moon.
Which will be visible from parts of Australia, Asia, Africa, South America and Europe.
Sorry North America you will need to watch this online.
Mars will be making its closes approach to the earth since the year 2003.
Between July 27th and July 31st The red planet will be in opposition of The Earth creating a phenomenon called Mars opposition.
Mars will appear very bright in the night sky right next to the blood moon shortly after sunset.
Mars will have its closest approach to Earth on July 31st and will be clearly visible.
Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will be only 36 million miles away and may be visible with the naked eye as well.
In 2003, Mars and Earth were the closest they've been in 60,000 years, roughly 34.6 million miles, or 55.7 million kilometers.
NASA said this planet proximity won't happen again until the year 2287.
So go outside and check it out.
And finally between August 11th and August 13th, some observers on Earth will be able to see the Perseid meteor shower originating from the Perseid's constellation.
People should see about 60 to 70 meteors per hour during this three day period.
Although the meteor shower does take place over a few weeks time.
Meteor showers occur when the earth travels through debris fields left behind by comets and asteroids.
You can see the Perseid meteor shower best in the northern hemisphere.
Last year, but it is also visible in the mid-southern latitudes.
