anyone read about it?

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 ultimate on August 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles of Earth. Be sure to watch the sky on August 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.

NOTE: Share this with your friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again

I thought someone shared earlier that it was a hoax? The actual event took place in 2003, some prankster decided to circulate it again :dunno:

Do a google search ...

Sure cannot beat this :devil:

The truth is that if Mars is to look as large as the Moon, then Earth and Mars would form binary planets and would fall out of current orbit.... then you can say good bye to our Sun liao. :sweat:

ya lo... so silly of me to missed out checking that
What I always do is that if a mail sounds too good to be true or if it sounds suspiciously like a hoax, I will do a hoax search on internet. Eg. if you type "Mars Hoax" in search engine, you will find a lot of info. Same goes for a lot of others. After a while, you develop a nose for smelling out these stuff without even having to do a search.
