K.O.W.radio and our vast communication system sez..it's bullshit.
Mars at the present time is on the far side of the sun.
It's closest approach was in 2003 and is not due again until 2287.

Now back to our regularly sceduled broadcasting.

At its all-time closest approach to Earth, Mars was still 140 times farther away than the Moon, so there's absolutely no chance of Mars ever "looking like a second moon." At that distance, only the most powerful home telescopes will even allow you to see visible disc.

Look at it this way; put a honeydew melon on a fencepost 10 feet away from you; then put a pumpkin on a fencepost 1,400 feet away from you. Now, look at them both from an angle that puts them side by side, and you'll see that the pumpkin looks like a very tiny orange dot compared to the honeydew melon!

To put that into perspective, the difference between melon and pumpkin will be even greater than the difference between "O" and "."

In order for Mars to "look like a second moon," it would have to pass within a million miles of Earth (basically, 3 to 4 times the distance from Earth to the Moon, due to the scale difference between Mars and our Moon) at which point the tidal forces generated by having another large planetary mass pass that close to our own world would cause unparallelled damage in the form of unbelievably massive earthquakes (>15-20 on the Richter scale) and miles-high tides which would be MORE than sufficient to destroy our entire civilisation, and almost certainly causing a mass extinction event on a par with the infamous "Dinosaur Killer" of 65 million years ago!

No, my friend, I'm sorry to have to burst your bubble, but there won't be any "two moons" in our sky anytime soon, for which we can all be heartily grateful!


Just my .02's worth, sincerely, "Mac"

Mac's right but mars will be almostt as bright as Venus is normally. It's still a pretty good show. Just not two moons.
