A Beacon From Mars

Setting Orange, Bureaucracy 16 - Year Of Our Lady Of Discord 3172

Pixie had an e-mail sent to her a few weeks ago, which she forwarded on to me. The text reads:

"Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August. Itwill look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will cultimate 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 TheEarth has 2 Moons. Don't Miss it.....

The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

Share this with ur friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it .................. again."

I dunno--it seems like a hoax to me. Still, I may be watching out for it. Of course, with the way the weather's been--it'll probably be raining that night.

I'll keep a look out!! I find it hard to believe that Mars will be THAT big but let's see.

That's why I'm thinking it may be a hoax--that whole "The Earth will look like it has 2 moons" stuff.

I'm going to check on it, if Sunday has a clear night sky.
