Can you spot the difference?
Yeah I got this e-mail. It was half true Mars was going to pass its closest to the earth but some joker took the original text and cut a bit out. This made it read like Mars was going to appear as big as the moon to the naked eye.
Hats off to the perpetrator he nearly got me. It was only that I decided that surely Mars would gradually get bigger over a few nights, and not just sundenly appear like the moon on 1 night. Once I had looked into this further I found the real article which suprise, suprise mentioned high power telescopes etc etc.
Good try though!!
