Seen with the naked eye, Mars is a campfire coal against the firmament. Because of its bloody hue, the Babylonians 3,000 years ago identified it with their god of death. Seven celestial bodies gave name to the seven days of the Babylonian week: the Sun, the Moon, Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn. Mars Day was Tuesday; the linkage survives in the French Mardi and the Italian Martedi. The name Mars itself comes from the Roman god of war.
