This hoax has been making the rounds again. It started off in 2003, via email, and has not stopped since. We can keep quiet about it, sure, but we can also try our best to spread the truth.
The Moon and Mars will not appear to be of the same size on the night of the 27th of August. This is not possible, even at Mars’ closest point to Earth. It is simply too far away.
To those who are spreading the hoax unknowingly, please take the time to go out and have a look – find out whether this is true or false. You don’t have to take my word for it.
If you think this would be helpful to others, please share it.
