Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta New York Times Service NEW YORK About every 26 months, when the planet Mars swings relatively close to the earth, it shines brightly in the eastern sky after sunset, an unmistakable, un- flickering reddish beacon se- cond in planetary brilliance only to Venus. This occurred Tuesday night as Mars moved within miles of the earth. its closest approach since the summer of 1971. Because of Mars's more eccentric orbit, it can swing in as close as 35 million miles from earth and then move out as much as 63 million miles.

MARS PROMINENT IN NIGHT SKY night. The Hayden Planetarium here reports that, with small telescopes, some of the planet's surface coloring and markings should be clearly visible. It is no coincidence that, at the time of this close approach, a convoy of four Soviet spacecraft is on its way to explore the environs of Mars and attempt landings on its windswept, desert surface. The four unmanned craft designated Mars 4. 5, 6 and 7 were launched in late July and early August and are scheduled to rendezvous with Mars between mid-February and mid-March. In a departure from their usual secrecy. Soviet officials said that the four vehicles were aimed for "fly-by, or- biter and lander" missions. In 1971, the Soviet Union succeeded in soft-landing a capsule on Mars, but it emitted signals for only 20 seconds. The United States, whose Mariner 9 orbited Mars in 1971 and mapped the planet, miss- ed this opportunity to explore Mars. But it has already selected landing sites for two viking spacecraft that are to be launched in 1975, shortly before the planet's next closest approach. The Viking landings would come in the summer of 1976, one of them possibly on July 4 the nation's 200th birthday Westinghouse Counter Top Fridge Ideal for family room use........
