The next time Mars may come like this close only in 2287. Share this with your friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again.
I could not confirm the veracity of this claim. All that I could ascertain was the fact that Mars will be closest to Earth on 27th and it will be visible all through the night. But contrary to the claim of the mail I had read in one site that for the month of August 2006, Mars is setting in the north-west less than an hour after sunset; we are very unlikely to see the “Red Planet” this month, or indeed for the rest of this year.
Have you heard anything on this or want to offer any coment on this.
