Two Moons

  1. My wife sent me an email from her work about a month ago telling me about a special day, today I think where Mars would be closer to earth than it will be in 280 years if you miss it tonight... Her reference claimed that some places on earth it would look like there were two moons... so when it gets dark check out the sky...

    Ugh, were having a thunderstorm and the freaking clouds are blocking the sky! >.<; Man, I wish this storm came some other time or right after I saw the two moons ;_;

    That's no moon. It's a space station.

  9. Well, I asked my wife about the email she sent me from her work and she just sent me the original email and, as it turns out I was a day off... it is supposed to be today or tonight... here is a coyp of the email:

    I don't know if it is a big deal or not.... I did a google with mars earth August 2007 and some of links were provided... there is also a link for dec. 07?

    no, it's not true. mars won't be as close to earth as it was 4 years ago. and it will never be close enough to earth to look like the full moon to the naked eye - key words. it has been and will be close enough to look like that with a 75x telescope, though.

    it's still cool, just not exactly what the email says it will be.
