I don't know if this is true. Received it in an e-mail.
If anyone is up past midnight tonight.
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 of 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.

Not very true. It's been coming around for several years now....google it and you will see the significance that it is not.

That was back in 2003, and only when looking through a 75x telescope. It has become an urban legend since.  :D Mars gets close every 15-17 years actually, but hasn't been that close in a long time.

Look up perihelic opposition in google with reference to NASA. ;)

We were just coming up the valley this evening as that came over the mountains and looked twice as big as normal.

Suppose to happen about 2:30AM our time.  Think I'll miss it.

The moon is suppose to set here before the eclipse so we don't see it. The moon is nice and bright for the time it is up. Thought it was getting daylight. Oh well, I'm up now. ;)

Well I can just see the eclipse beginning on the top portion of the moon. The sun will be up here in 45 minutes.

Well the sun is almost up and there is just a sliver left on the bottom edge of the moon as it sets in the western horizon.  ;D

Ianab, You had the same view that we had. Awesome show! It started about 4:30 and was in total eclipse at 5:00AM then by 6:00 it was all gone and the sun was starting to come up. Cool way to start my day!
