Earth, Sun and Mars to align Tuesday in rare space event

SunMoonYou’ll be treated to a rare show if you look to the skies when it gets dark Tuesday night.

Mars will be visible all night long.

It will be a bright burnt orange color and almost 10 times brighter than the brightest stars in the sky.

That’s because Mars, Earth and the Sun will be arranged in a nearly-straight line.

This only happens every two years.
