Mars is going to be the second moon for the Earth

SALAM ALL







NO ONE ALIVE WILL EVER SEE THIS AGAIN!!!

The Red Planet (MARS) is about to be spectacular! This month and next, Earth is catching up with Mars in an encounter that will culminate in the closest approach between the two planets in recorded history.

The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on Mars and perturbs its orbit, astronomers can only be certain that Mars has not come this close to Earth in the last 5,000 years, but it may be as long as 60,000 years before it happens again.

The encounter will culminate on August 27th when Mars comes to within 34,649,589 miles of Earth and will be (next to the moon) the brightest object in the night sky. It will attain a magnitude of - 2.9 and will appear 25.11 arc seconds wide. By August 27, Mars will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. Mars will be easy to spot.

At the beginning of August it will rise in the east at 10p.m. and reach its azimuth at about 3 a.m. by the end of August when the two planets are closest, Mars will rise at nightfall and reach its highest point in the sky at 12: 30a.m. That's pretty convenient to see something that no human being has seen in recorded history. So, mark your calendar at the beginning of August to see Mars grow progressively brighter and brighter throughout the month.

Share this with your family, friends, children and grandchildren



see you soon

Salam Maas,

Thank you for telling us about this! I have enjoyed learning about astronomy since I was a small child. I have a telescope now and it will be fun to look through it to see Mars. :)

A few years ago, I visited a famous observatory in the U.S. It is on top of Kitt Peak in Arizona. There are several very large telescopes there. I believe that the mirror of the largest one is four meters across! There was a 16 inch (about 40 cm) telescope there for visitors to look through. It provided a much better view than my small 4 inch telescope!

Take care :)

Just for fun, a riddle:

A person is in jail

Another person comes to bail that person out of jail

The rules at the police station are "Only a relative can bail a person out"

So the jailkeeper asks, what relation are you to this prisoner?

The person replies:

"Brothers and sisters I have none, but this mans father is my fathers son"

Who is it?

This is scientifically wrong.

Mars will never come THAT close to the Earth simply following his orbit.

The minimum distance he will ever achieve
is about 0.37AU, and then he will still
have the 1/150 size of the Moon, for
an observer on Earth.

So please, ston spreading bad science.

To start with I would like to congratulate the creators of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much.A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics. Perhaps readers may find no relationship between the blog and this conference, but if someday can attend,would realize that there is much to do with this blog.

Steve said...

Hello .. firstly I would like to send greetings to all readers. After this, I recognize the content so interesting about this article. For me personally I liked all the information.
