BEWARE THE MARS HOAX: On August 27, 2009, Mars will come so close to Earth, the red planet will be as big as a full Moon in the night sky. If you believe that, you've just fallen for the Mars Hoax. It's a viral email filled with misinformation that has many readers circling August 27th on their calendars. Don't bother. Mars will be 243 million km from Earth on that date. If you really want to see the red planet as large as a full Moon, you'll need a rocketship.
