Look at the claim (above) for 2003 & then for 2018 & today.
I am more than willing to admit that We & Mars are rather close together today. I also have NO problems making claims about closeness as long as we don’t go BEYOND 400-years. That is it.
All bets are OFF for distances prior to that. We just don’t know. We don’t have any measurements. We are still trying to nail down orbital distances, shapes & periods.
60,000-years ago. WE HAVE NO CLUE.

Mars Made Its Closest Approach To Earth In Over 60,000 Years, This Day 14-Years Ago; August 27, 2003.
I think I remember this. 2003 was a busy year.
Wow, closest in 60,000 years. No that is NOT a typo. That is real. Pretty amazing. There have been quite few Internet HOAXES about close approaches of Mars since then — but they are what they are, hoaxes and nothing else.
