Double Moon?

  1. Aug 26, 2010 #1
    So I received an email today about how mars is supposed to be the closest to earth in like 5000 years and that it should look like a smaller moon directly next to the normal moon. I looked around the internet and some sites say that its a hoax. Does anyone know anything about this at all?

    That myth has been floating around for sometime now.

    Hoax.

    It is a stale 7 year old hoax that is apparently being recycled as something a little different from last time. It is discussed here: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=424132

    If you still have it, though, I'd be interested in seeing the contents of that email. Could you copy/paste it?
