Two Moons 2010
Two Moon 2010 – There has been a lot of talk today about two moons appearing on the sky on August 27 of this year. This is an old rumor that seems to appear every year since 2003, actually it should be called the two moons hoax.

The 2003 email said Mars would be circulating very near Earth which would make it appear as if the sky had two moons during the night. You may recognize the following text from the email if you’ve got one recently:

“The Red Planet Mars is about to be spectacular as it can be seen in the sky. Earth and Mars will be at its closest in 60,000 years. The next time Mars may come this close may be after several years in the year 2287. The encounter between Earth and Mars will culminate on August 27 when the red planet comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and will be next to the moon the brightest object in the sky at night. It will have a magnitude of -2.9 and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. In its 75-power magnification, Mars will look as large as the full moon through the naked eye.By August 27 where both planets will be closest to each other, Mars will rise at nightfall and will reach its highest point in the sky at 12:30 am. As such, we will be able to see two moons in the sky – one is the actual moon and the other is the red planet Mars. Mark your calendars to see Mars as the second moon in the sky. This is a rare opportunity as no one alive today will ever witness the second event when this happens again.”

Why this is a hoax? Simply because this won’t happen, you won’t see two moons on August 27, 2010. The close proximity of Mars was registered in 2003, and in 2005 the red planet came close again but not as it happened in 2003. Next time it comes closer to Earth will be in 2287 so have your email ready!
