    On August 27, moon near Jupiter – not Mars

    By coincidence, there will be a brilliant planet near the moon on August 27, the king planet Jupiter. Will some people look outside on the night of August 27 – see Jupiter near the moon – and think this brilliant world is Mars?

    Question...how will Mars look any different tonight than it did last night?

    Will Mars all of a sudden appear huge in the sky tonight, while last night and tomorrow night it would just appear like a tiny dot?

    No one alive today will see it tonight either.

    This hoax has been going around since 2003, when Mars came as close to the Earth as it has or will in hundreds of years. Every August now....its the scourge for amateur astronomers. I looked at Mars this morning, and anyone who thinks that's "as large as the moon" probably can't find the moon anyway.

    SHIT!

    Does that mean that my scheduled catered affair tonight will be worthless?

    Not if it includes an open bar.

    That's right!

    If you drink enough, EVERY night can have a double moon!
