    Same theory applies to sunsets/sunrises.

    When low in the sky, only sunlight's red-yellow spectrum is visible. Moonlight is essentially reflected sunlight

    Don't Miss it..... The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

    Moonrise timing is not fixed. Can be day, can be night. Newspaper weather forecast page will say moonrise/set timings

    It only takes a very basic understanding of the geography of planets and stars to know that this is obviously a trick.

    Imagine this (if I'm not wrong)...
    It takes the about 3 days for apollo to reach the moon...and it is estimated that it would take 6 months to reach Mars, if a journey is attempted. Examine the differences in the distance via time taken to travel from earth to the two places. So if Mars is as big as the full moon.....

    In fact, in the original e-mail (which is a hoax based on August 27th, 2003 Mars mania) -
    "At a modest 75-power magnification Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye."
    (RE: http://www.universetoday.com/2006/07...oon-in-august/ )

    If you cut the sentence short, then it will become -
    "Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye."
