Amazing August

This Aug has 5 Sundays 5 Tuesdays 5 Mondays all in one Month it happens in 823 yrs and this below is happening as well.

Something for your kids to see or just you.

Two moons on 27th August 2010

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.

Share this with your friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again.
I just hope the sky is clear !!!!

Amazing August...

Hi Yummy, thanks for this information. Here's hoping for a cloud free sky tomorrow night. Got storms forecast for tonight and tomorrow morning!

I was driving home one evening and we saw Mercury and Venus as evening stars, not that uncommon OH tells me but it was stunning :0)

August Moons

Sorry Folks, may have misled you all with what would appear to be a hoax !!

Will still have a look outside (if the clouds have disappeared.....) just in case !! I took it to indicate that it would be 12.30am tomorrow morning.


Silly (gullible) Yummy :0(

It did happen, but in 2003

Never mind Yummy, the weather doesn't look too promising. From the NASA website:

"June 18, 2003: Count slowly: one one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand… You just got about 30 km closer to the planet Mars.

"Earth and Mars are rapidly converging. On August 27, 2003 … the date of closest approach … the two worlds will be 56 million km apart …

"Much has been made of the fact that the August 27th encounter with Mars is the closest in some 60,000 years. Neanderthals were the last to observe Mars so favorably placed …"
