Two Moons :)

2 Moons visible on 27 August '06. Chance of a LIFETIME


Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting next August 2006.

It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye.
This will cultimate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65 M 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.


NOTE :
Share this with your friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again. ONLY LIFETIME CHANCE THIS TIME.

Hi smiley

U know what, Ive also recd such emails stating the same. But what Im unsure is if this is really Aug 27, 2006? Cos I thot last yr i saw a similar mail with the same date tho it was 2005! And as that was also @ midnite, some of my colleagues etc claimed to have witnessed the same. (I sat up till 10.30 & cudnt see anything much & hence slept!) So Im wondering the correctness of the same. If u or anyone else knows anything abt this, pls throw light on the authenticity of the same. Thanks!

Beware the Mars Hoax

7.07.2005


Earth and Mars are converging for a close encounter--but not as close as some peoplJuly 7, 2005: Just when you thought it was safe to read your email....

There's a rumor about Mars going around the internet. Here are some snippets from a widely-circulated email message:

The Red Planet is about to be spectacular."

"Earth is catching up with Mars [for] the closest approach between the two planets in recorded history."

"On August 27th … Mars will look as large as the full moon."

And finally, "NO ONE ALIVE TODAY WILL EVER SEE THIS AGAIN."

Only the first sentence is true. The Red Planet is about to be spectacular. The rest is a hoax.

Here are the facts: Earth and Mars are converging for a close encounter this year on October 30th at 0319 Universal Time. Distance: 69 million kilometers. To the unaided eye, Mars will look like a bright red star, a pinprick of light, certainly not as wide as the full Moon.

Disappointed? Don't be. If Mars did come close enough to rival the Moon, its gravity would alter Earth's orbit and raise terrible tides.

Sixty-nine million km is good. At that distance, Mars shines brighter than anything else in the sky except the Sun, the Moon and Venus. The visual magnitude of Mars on Oct. 30, 2005, will be -2.3. Even inattentive sky watchers will notice it, rising at sundown and soaring overhead at midnight.

You might remember another encounter with Mars, about two years ago, on August 27, 2003. That was the closest in recorded history, by a whisker, and millions of people watched as the distance between Mars and Earth shrunk to 56 million km. This October's encounter, at 69 million km, is similar. To casual observers, Mars will seem about as bright and beautiful in 2005 as it was in 2003.

Although closest approach is still months away, Mars is already conspicuous in the early morning. Before the sun comes up, it's the brightest object in the eastern sky, really eye-catching. If you have a telescope, even a small one, point it at Mars. You can see the bright icy South Polar Cap and strange dark markings on the planet's surface.

I checked it on the net. They say it will be close but not like 2003. So for people who have not seen in 2003 this might be closest.

sorry about the misinformation
