The Red Planet

Scientist now say that water could stay liquid on Mars. As the red planet passes very close to earth these days, you can see it on the lahori horizon even with a naked eye. For the myopic ones who cannot bear the sight of this indecent exposure, a virtual eye might be an option. Lahore is on 31.32N latitude and 74.22E longitude approximately.

    Just a little clarification. Mars is always visible with naked eye (whenever it is above horizon ofcourse)

    What I mean to say is that its visibility with naked eye has nothing to do with its distance.
    You cant even see the sun when its not above the horizon. Can you?
