Mars will be directly opposite the sun on July 27. This is going to be the closest Mars has been to the earth since 2003 hence it is brighter than normal.

Which makes the dust storm a pain in the ass for anyone wanting to take pictures of Mars; all we are getting right now is a featureless orange ball.
