    2 moons on Aug 27th

    Anyone else heard about this.
    Sounds cool.
    *Two moons on 27 August*

    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 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.

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

    Sorry, J Smith, but it's one of those pesky internet rumors.

    This is a hoot. I just got this hoax in an e-mail from my wife's mom. She falls for lots of internet hoaxes and forwards them to all of us.

    I love this hoax (seen it before). It'll get people all over the world looking at the moon... on my birthday. Not sure why I find that funny, but I do.

    Most people find it funny when they show their moon on their birthday.
    Follow the mushin, but pay it no heed.
