A rare cosmic occurrence called an opposition, where the Sun, Earth and Mars will fall into a straight line, will occur on April 8.

Mars completes an orbit around the sun in 687 days as compared to the Earth, which is closer to the sun and takes 365 days, News.com.au reported.

These differences mean an opposition is rare, occurring about once every couple of years.
