Planet Mars is coming closer to the Earth and will be the brightest planet in our night sky this month. Planet Mars will maximize the look of it's size from Earth on August 27th, when Mars comes within only 34.65 Miles of Earth! Be sure to watch the sky on August 27th, at 12:30 AM. It will almost look like the Earth has two Moons. The next time Mars will come this close to the Earth is supposably in the year 2,287! So See it now because it won't happen again for over a thousand years! Also, there will be a TOTAL Lunar Eclipse on August 28th, 2007.
