About a month before mars was at its closest, i was looking at the moon when a bright star suddenly caught my attention (from above left of mars facing north), when i looked at it i realised it was moving and gradually getting smaller and dimmer, i kept looking after it disappeared (2-3 mins) and about 5 minutes later i saw a very dim light moving from pretty much exactly were mars was. as the new light reached the point where i noticed the previous bright light, it seemed to explode and got much lighter. it then followed the path of the previous light exactly (as near as i could tell)gradually fading out at the same point as the previous one.
