too close for comfort
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 on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles off earth. Please 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.
I got this info as a forward, and frankly, I don't know whether to believe it. 34.65 miles is less than the length of my city, Bangalore!
If anyone knows how, where to verify this info, please tell me. I am worried for my life!
P.S. I just got enlightened! It ain't 34 miles. Its 34 million miles, the M for miles.
Thank God for M. Ah, now I can breathe.
