Fourth planet from Sun to radiate on Christmas Eve

The question of snow on Christmas Eve fades in the face of Mars. The fourth planet from the Sun is going to add to radiance of the world ready to celebrate the birth of Christ.

To the naked-eye, Mars usually appears a distinct yellow, orange, or reddish color, and varies in brightness more than any other planet as seen from Earth over the course of its orbit. But this time the distance of 55 million miles away won’t stand in the way of its bright glow in the sky.

Mars will be directly opposite the sun on Christmas Eve. It will be about as close and as bright to Earth as it ever gets. A spectacular full moon will follow the glow creating the duet of wandering strangers until sunrise Christmas morning.

For some viewers Christmas Eve may turn into outdoor speculation of the phenomenon and dreaming about fairy-tale images, such as Rudolf.
