    Two moons on 27th August 2010




    jef[​IMG]





    27th Aug the Whole World is waiting for.............

    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. 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.

    Sorry to be the one to burst any bubbles, but this happened back in '03.

    The same story goes round every year. Gets my hopes up too :sorry:

    Yea, but nowhere near as close as it was in '03. This month, Mars will just be another dot in the sky. Venus and Saturn will be brighter! Mars is roughly 196 million miles away from us at the mo and it's meant to be 36 million.

    I love anything to do with space! Last year on one of my courses I had to learn about celestial navigation, so learnt quite a bit about stars, planets and the moon.

    Here's a good program that I use. You put in your position, and it simulates the sky with all the positions of stars and planets. You click on any of them and it'll give you all it's details in real time from exact position in the sky, brightness and how far away from it you are.
