Two moons on August 27th!

 

The Whole World is waiting for August 27th ??

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 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. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287!

 

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

If you check the orbit of Mars, you'll see it won't get as close as you see the Moon in Earth. If Mars came to the orbit wherein it's close to Earth, it will just look like a redish star-like thingy and just a bit bigger than most of the stars regularly seen in the sky.

 

I've already seen Mars get close to Earth so I know it won't look like as if it was another moon.

 

:lol:

Well, I love this sort of stuff, and I'll be out with a pair of binoculars, and a camera, in the hope that there's even a smidgeon of truth in the Myth.

 

Thanks Linda, even it it's not quite what we hope for.

 

I think you might be out there Hazel, just in case. :D

 

And by out there, I don't mean :blink: out there. You know what I mean.

If it were ever as close as the Earth's moon I'd think it would cause some rather nasty gravitational forces to happen upon the Earth. Imagine the tide level going totally out of wack, and tons of volcanos erupting.

 

There is an email circulating the internet?called the "Mars Hoax" or the "Two Moons email"?claiming that Mars will soon swell as large as the full Moon, and the two will hang together side by side on the night of Aug. 27th. "Mars will be spectacular," it states. "No one alive today will ever see this again."

Another wonder of the universe as I call it, the space between planets. They are just right in place so that they won't clash or do any distortion on themselves.

 

Just imagine if someone was pulled by Mars' gravity.

I think it may relate to the fact that the eclipse of the moon around that date will show the moon to be a reddy colour.

if I was to see two moons I'd think I'd drank too much and my eyes had gone a bit wobbly...

Good one, and possibly the most scientific point ever made out of all the two moons talk floating about. :lol:
