Maybe no one will get much sleep in August.  It will be due to the planet Mars .
  * The Red Planet is about to be spectacular! 
 * This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars in an  encounter that will culminate in the closest  approach between the two planets in recorded  history.
    * The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.
    * Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on 
      Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be 
      certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth 
      in the Last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as 
      60,000 years before it happens again. 
      The encounter will culminate on August 27th when
      Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and
      will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in 
      the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of -2.9
      and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide.
    * At a modest 75-power magnification 
Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye.
 Mars will be easy to spot.
At the beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10p.m. 
and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m. 
By the end of August when the two planets are
closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its 
highest point in the sky at 12:30a.m. That's pretty
convenient to see something that no human being has seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at
the beginning of August to see Mars grow 
progressively brighter and brighter throughout the

Hope not Ritu. If I do I think it will be because by that time our nights are starting to get a lot warmer and it sometimes is hard to get to sleep as my fan makes me take sheet off and on. Golly Mars and I are good friends.
