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.

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.
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?? **
