Planet Mars will be brightest in the night sky starting August. It will look as large as the full moon to our eyes. This will culminate on August 27 when Mars comes to within 35 million miles of earth. So Be sure to watch the sky on August 27 12:30am. It will look like the Earth has two moons. The next time Marswill be this close is in 2287. Better not miss this opportunity because NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again!!!!
