    "Planet Mars will be the brightest in the sky starting August. It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will cultimate on August 27 when Mars comes within 34.65 million(?) miles of earth. Be sure to watch the sky on August 27 @ 12.30 am. It will look like the earth has two moons. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287."

    Message from my cousin... anyone else heard about it..? share what you've heard/think will ya... i dont know how real this is.. but i am so gonna set up some chairs in the garden and chill out with my camera at 12am to hopefully catch two moons...

    Nice pics...

    About the mars thing. I got the same email from a friend. I checked it out and I wouldn't advise you getting too comfy in your garden. I believe you'll be waiting on an event that's already happened on August 27, 2003. Yep, 2003. The message is 3 years old. But, hey, it could still happen, who knows...if not this month, in 2287?
