The Earth will be closer to Mars than it has been in over 60,000 years, 34.6 million miles away, early Wednesday morning. The red planet is normally about 50 million miles from Earth, on the average. The closest point will officially take place just minutes before 6:00AM EDT and visible from any point where there are dark skies. It’s only a matter of time before we send some mofos to the red rock.

Update: (8/27/2003) Here is a follow-up story of the event.
