Moon/Mars

This information came in an email..Thought you all might enjoy reading and watching.


On the 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.



Till next time, keep looking up.

Ooh very cool, thanks for the tip I put it in my calendar since its truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Thanks for stopping by, I can always count on you to check in Carolyn & that makes me smile :-) Just posted today in fact, been a crazy busy working and playing summer!

How about you? This heat and sunshine is a stark contrast to last summer so I hope you're out enjoying it my friend!
