Thread: MARS sighting on 27 Aug

    Default MARS sighting on 27 Aug

    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 cultimate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles of Earth.

    Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am. It will look like The Earth has 2 Moons. Don't Miss it.....

    The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.
    Share this with ur friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again.

    Hopefully there will be some good shots and clear sky too

    Wow hope Mar's gravity won't create tsunami.

    34.65M miles is freaking close for a planet.

    If Mars was as big as moon, we would have a very very very serious matter on our hands.

    Mars will never be as big as the moon. The email is a hoax attached to the 2003 transition

    Hi fellow CSers, let's just believe that the threadstarter is duped too... It's easier to do that... Let us give him the benefit of doubt... Anyway, the truth has been revealed...
