TWO MOONS IN AUGUST!!!!!!!!

Two Moons???? Is it a Hoax??? My first reaction was to get up on the roof top to see this one!!! Talk about GULLIBLE!!!!

DON'T FORGET TO MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR THE NIGHT OF THE 26th AUGUST

There will be two moons on the 27th August.

The twenty-seventh of August, 2007 is the day the Whole World is waiting for....
Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August. It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will cultivate on August 27th, when Mars comes within 34.65M miles of earth. Be sure to watch the sky on August 27th, 12:30 am. It will look like the the planet Earth has two moons.
The next time Mars may come this close will be in 2287.


Share this with your friends, as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY, will ever see it again.

I found this from Space/Astronomy
"Mars Close to Earth Email
Is it true?

Not only is this not true for this year, at least part of it is not true ever.

"Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye."

If Mars ever looked as large as the moon, everyone on Earth would probably die very soon.

Now, for the rest of the email, as David Emory, the Urban Legends Guide, puts it, "I labeled this rumor 'true' when it first began circulating in the summer of 2003, 'outdated' when it went around again in 2005, and just plain 'false' when it appeared for the third time earlier this month."

David is right, the record approach happened in 2003 when Mars Closest To Earth in 50,000 Years. Also, Mars was pretty close last year during the Close Approach of Mars in 2005.

Earth is currently chasing Mars around the sun. The next time we "lap" it and get pretty close to Mars (when Mars is in opposition) is around December 17, 2007.

Unfortunately the information about mars is not correct. The real event occurred in 2003.
