Mars will not look as big as the moon, not tomorrow, not ever.

by Chris Carter

Maybe you have seen the news on Facebook?

WARNING!

August 27 at 00:30 Lift up your eyes and look up at the night sky. On this night, the planet Mars will pass just 34.65 million miles from the earth. To the naked eye it looks like two of the moon above the ground! The next time Mars will be so close to the Earth as much as in 2287.

Share the news with your friends, because no one living on this earth has ever seen!
