Default Mars 2.2 mins apart from Neptune

Not visible from N. America but maybe someone can get a shot elsewhere?

What's not visible from N. America?

I see it every day from N. 38 parallel!

But not at the closest approach to Neptune for the next 200 years, no... that has already passed...

Mars and Neptune when they are nearest one another in the sky is not
visible from North America. And not from South America either, nor
from Europe or Africa. But from Asia, you'll be able to see it.

They just line up that way!
You're suggesting the end of world coming?

No, he didn't suggest that at all. Close planetary conjunctions are
interesting to watch, and you can point them out without being an
apocalypse-ist.
