A unique cosmic event will sparkle in UAE skies.

Mars will make its closest approach to a dazzling star cluster for the first time in 30 years.

The Red Planet will pair up closely with the Pleiades cluster, which is expected to be highly visible to the naked eye during the night.

Mars will not be this close to the cluster of seven stars, also known as the Seven Sisters, or Messier 45, again until 2038.

The planet will be 2.6 degrees south of the Pleiades, while in 1991, it passed 1.7 degrees south of the cluster.

Pleiades is a Greek word commonly used now to label the cluster
