2 moons or 2 eyes on 27th august 2008 ?

Have you heard about that we are gonna have 2 moons on the 27 august this year.

haiyooo, im not talking about those moons ler.. the real moon, you know, the one up in the sky, like this one


Well, some says its just a hoax and i do agree with that too. It’s impossible to have two moon in our solar system. The mail is kinda misleading with the statement, it should be said that, the sky will looks like have 2 moons. Actually, its planet Mars and earth are converging it will looks like a. For more scientific explanation, visit here

The email goes like this:

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.

BUT, i’ve been receiving the same email since 2003 if i’m not mistaken but just the change of the year to 27th august 2003, 2005, 2007 now 2008. God damn spammers, read this

Planet Mars looks huge, bright, and features on the surface were easy to see. But times like this actually happen roughly every 2 years, when Earth catches up to Mars as they orbit the Sun. This close approach happened again on October 29, 2005, and again on December 18, 2007.


and another source says,

Contrary to rumor, though, Mars is never going to outshine the Moon. It is true that Earth and Mars are converging–you’re now 300 miles closer–but even at closest approach the two planets are separated by a gulf of tens of millions of miles. From such a distance, Mars looks like a star, an intense yet tiny pinprick of light, never a full Moon!! Source

You might not see two moons but according to astrologer, you will be see 2 eyes like below:

So, from what we can see from the both statements, clearly says the content in the mail are inaccurate for sure. But we will never know will there really be shining Mars up in the sky. I say no harm look up the sky on 27 august, after all, its FOC. lolz

** is there any do and don’t from Hinduism during the planet convergence like the one we had during eclipse?? **

  1. Lol…I got that email too but not that dumb to forward it to others as I check out first..And got this :

    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. This is true. It’s also a bit of hype. Mars and Earth have been almost this close many times in recent history.

    Some examples: Aug. 23, 1924; Aug. 18, 1845; Aug. 13, 1766. In each case Mars and Earth were approximately 56 million km apart.

    Astronomers call these close encounters “perihelic oppositions.” Perihelic means Mars is near perihelion — its closest approach to the sun. (The orbit of Mars, like that of all planets, is an ellipse, so the distance between the sun and Mars varies.) Opposition means that the sun, Earth and Mars are in a straight line with Earth in the middle. Mars and the sun are on opposite sides of the sky. When Mars is at opposition and at perihelion — at the same time — it is very close to Earth.

    August 27 is indeed the best perihelic opposition since the days of the Neanderthals, but it scarcely differs from other more recent ones. That’s fine because all perihelic oppositions of Mars are spectacular.

    And it is stated that Mars and Earth do come together every two years, reaching the closest point on their orbits – astronomers call this “opposition”. And we’re in one of those years..so,it do make sense if d email circulated on 2003, 2005, 2007 but 2008?? hmmmmm..

    And people tend to fwd d mail without getting d facts first and now most of them will be looking forward for 27 Aug and jadi buta.com when ntg as speculated appear..But as u said..no harm look up the sky on 27 august, after all, its FOC. 😉

  2. rubenee, so from which latitude and longitude are u gonna watch the 2 “moon” a?hehe
    k3sh, atthuthaan k3sh..then wat u tot a?u notty boy!!
