    There will be two moons in the sky on 27 August*

    *27th Aug 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 culminate 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. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

    NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again.

    It would depend on where you were on planet earth though, in terms of time differences...?

    I was just about to pop in with this. It was august 27th, 2003 that it got closer then it had in 60,000 years, and it looked as big as the moon through a telescope not to the naked eye. This is an urban legend twisted from confusion with the actual event. So, while its always great to look to the night sky to see amazing things and I would encourage you to go out on the 27th or any other night, really, know what your getting into :biggrin:

    Oh, damnit x]
    Seriously though, I can't remember where I read it or heard it for sure, but I reamember it being an extremely trusting source. Something about the second moon being too small or something, so we can't see it. Science always lie to us at school, they're still teaching the wrong cirriculum. It's not an impossibility xP

    That is true. I've learned more since I've been done with school it seems.

    Haha, school lies o_O
    they told me at GCSE (Exams before college) level, that everything they taught us in Science was a lie, because it was to coplex to tell us the truth xD
