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 occur on 27th August, 2006 when Mars comes within 34.65M 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.
What that means is that NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again. So set a reminder in your calendar and don’t forget to see this miracle.
