“Mars will look as big as the Moon!” – not again!
I hadn’t come across this again this year. I have in the past and it is always funny to see that some spammer is sending around emails stating that Mars will be as big as the Moon in the sky. I do think it must be a bunch of astronomers trying to get people to go along to their local society, but I doubt it (oh if you want to go along to your local society go to [fedastro.org.uk] and you will find a big long list! Anyway [badastronomy.com] has a very good article on the big Mars hoax!
