The Son of the Zombie Mars Hoax that will not Die
Sheesh is it that time of year again? The Mars hoax is circulating once more. No, Mars will not be as big as the full Moon, there will be no double Moon in the sky. In fact, Mars is very, very far from opposition and is almost at its smallest (it won't be at opposition again until 2012). However, on August 27, in the early evening Mars, Venus and Spica from a nice triangle. For an overveiw of what the Mars hoax is and why it is so wrong, see the Return of the Zombie Mars Hoax that will not Die.
