Mars Hoax Circulates: 'Big as the Moon!'

Postby longhaircowboy » Thu May 21, 2009 10:02 pm

In case anyone should get an email about a Mars approach this summer that says it will be as big as the moon go ahead and toss it. It aint so.
The problem is that "Aug. 27" is actually Aug. 27, 2003. Mars made a historically close pass by Earth that night (34.6 million miles, or 55.7 million km).

Mars even at its cl;osest just wouldn't look as big as the moon.
