Red Planet Day is celebrated on November 28 every year to celebrate the planet Mars and all its wonder. Because of its appearance, Mars earned the nickname “the red planet.” It has held a fascination for humankind since we have turned to the heavens and observed this giant glowing red ball in the night sky.

November 28 is the anniversary of the day in 1964 when NASA launched a probe to Mars. What makes Mars so interesting that it gets its own day each year? It is earth-like in many ways. It is the seventh-smallest planet but one of the favorites for us here on earth. Cartoons and science fiction stories have featured Martians from the planet Mars for years.

How To Celebrate Red Planet Day

Set aside November 28 to look at the night sky and see if you can find Mars with your telescope. Do some research online or at your local library into what we know about Mars. View pictures of the planet that have been sent back to NASA by one of the five spacecraft that are in constant orbit. Whatever you do, spread the word to get other people interested with the hashtag #RedPlanetDay
