KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Every two years, Mars' orbit places it directly opposite the sun in Earth's sky, according to Astronomy magazine.
And, Tuesday night is the time this happens. Mars, Earth and the sun will be arranged in a straight line.
You'll be able to see Mars by its bright burnt orange color. It will be about 10 times brighter than all the stars in the sky, according to NASA.
