Will Mars Be As Big as the Moon?

Many people are receiving emails telling them that Mars will be so close to us that it will appear in the sky as large as the Moon.

We just want to say …… don’t believe it.

It is a hoax that has been seen on a yearly basis for the last 8 years and normally hits email inboxes every August.

You have to go back to 2003 for the last time Mars was at it’s closest to Earth… and even then you needed a telescope to see the planet as more than a bright speck of light in the night sky.
