A cosmic event that only happens every 35,000 years: July 27, 2018, the planet Mars will be as big as the Moon

Two moons in the sky on July 27! The next time this cosmic event will happen again, will be 36,996 ……Share this information as much as possible with your friends because NO human being alive today will be able to behold this incredible phenomenon a second time.

This French translation of this article is available by clicking on this link : Un événement cosmique qui n’arrive que tous les 35 000 ans : le 27 juillet 2018, la planète Mars sera aussi grosse que la Lune

On July 27, around midnight, do not forget to raise your head and look into the sky: Mars will be the most brilliant star in the sky. This is because it will have an apparent diameter as big as the Full Moon! It will be possible to observe, with the naked eye, a cosmic phenomenon which will allow the inhabitants of the Earth to behold … two moons!

This is the first time that humanity will be able to observe this exceptional phenomenon. The last planet Mars proximity of such magnitude dates back to exactly 34,978 years, the Neolithic period during which Neanderthal and Homo habilis, the distant ancestors of Homo sapiens, coexisted together. Species to which the human race – or more precisely, mankind – belongs today.

This unique cosmic phenomenon called “two moons” is related, in part, to the proximity of the planet Mars with the Earth. As you must have seen on TV or read in the press, the planet Mars is now closer to the Earth, it is also possible to observe the orange star at night in the sky by looking towards the South. This phenomenon is quite common and appears about every 15 years.

But what remains more rare is the conjunction of another phenomenon that has the effect of greatly amplifying the proximity of Mars to our planet.

Indeed, the elliptical orbit of the giant Jupiter has a complex apochromatic altazimutal velocity for which the cyclo-parabolic projection (adjusted Lambert benchmark) is affected by a singular analemmic anomaly modifying the apside line (Editor’s note: the line joining the apocenter at the orbital periastron) which crosses precisely the orbit of the asterism of the planet Mars. The peculiarity of this recurrent phenomenon (commonly called “circumstellar elliptic conjunction of coercive neuronal elongation” among astrologers) is to allow the planet Mars to be projected into the telluric zone of solar attraction as a projectile ” launched from a sling ” and this, exactly every 34 978 years!

In other words much more handy for an average Facebook user, Mars will be big in the sky !!

For practical details, Mars’ heliocentric granular apogee will occur on July 27 at a distance of only 32 million light-years with an amplitude of -2.84 at maximum for a magnitude arc of 3.14 seconds. As a result, on this precise date, the planet Mars will appear in the sky as big as the full Moon!

There will be two moons in the sky on July 27! The next time this cosmic event will happen again, will be 36,996 ……Share this information as much as possible with your friends because NO human being alive today will be able to behold this incredible phenomenon a second time.

    • Excuse me, editor. But, I believe you have mistaken Mars with the planet Nibiru… which is also a total bunch of bull shit.

      • Also Mars is NOT a star. Get your facts straight.

        • While this is an internet hoax, Mars will be bright but it won’t be anywhere near the size, I did find through a different subject that in Japanese the word for star and planet is the same and the context makes the difference. At least that is how it was explained. Sure, it was in regarding the dubbing of a Godzilla movie when the nice Aussies that were dubbing Japanese were saying that these people came from the star Mars or something to that effect. Godzilla movies do tend to be a little silly, doesn’t change my love for them. So it might also be a translation error here. Still, plenty of errors here to go around.

        • LISSANDRO DANNY

          If this was a translation from a japanese article, then yes, it maybe a translation error as the word “hoshi/boshi” means both planet and star

      • “NIBURU”….lol….ok Mr Cosmos, where the hell you came out with that conclusion! Get the dust away from your ears and eyes and re read the article again…is a very uncommon event that ocurrs once in a long while! Has nothing to do with injury! Which in the end, the Niburu nature of its own story has been used and abused for rediculous purposes of the medua…BUT…like many celestial bodies like comets and such…the so called niburu is just another very similar comet like event. Not the b’s we all hear from some sick twisted dorks out there.

    • You guys are truly ignorant. Open the other subject headers at the top. This is a hilarious site that has totally tripped you up. Horst lives.

    • I highly suggest you all click on the about tab up at the top of the page to learn more about these amazing science communicators. I for one will be out with my camera on the 27th to capture this once in a 34 millenia event.

    • THE REAL FACTS! NO FICTION!

      Go out and look up to see Mars. On July 31, 2018, Mars will be closer, and therefore brighter, than it has been since 2003, and closer and brighter than it will be again until 2035. Mars looks like a very bright, orange/red star. For a couple months before and after closer approach it will be brighter than the brightest star in the night sky. On July 27, 2018, Mars will be at Opposition, the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. That same night, near Mars in the sky, there will be a total lunar eclipse (longest of the 21st century) visible for about half the Earth (South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia). Several other bright planets are also up in the evening sky. What does all this mean and how do you see the cool stuff? I’ve put together answers to the most common questions below.

      THE BASICS
      What is a Mars opposition?

      Mars Opposition occurs when Mars is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun.

      Mars at opposition

      MARS AT OPPOSITION
      Mars at opposition, the opposite side of Earth from the Sun. This shows planet locations for Mars opposition on July 27, 2018. Note also how Mars’ orbit is much less circular that Earth’s orbit.
      What is a Mars close approach?

      A Mars close approach occurs when Earth and Mars come closest to each other in their orbits. If their orbits were perfect circles, closest approach would occur at opposition. But their orbits are elliptical, which is the primary reason close approach is separated from opposition by several days as illustrated in the NASA visualization below (for the 2016 opposition).

      2018 MARS OPPOSITION SPECIFICS
      In 2018, when is Mars opposition? In 2018, when is Mars close approach?

      Mars Opposition is on July 27, 2018. Mars closest approach is on July 31, 2018.

      Where do I look to see Mars? Or, when Mars is at opposition, where is it in the sky?

      At opposition, Mars will rise in the East around sunset, be at its highest in the South in the middle of the night, and set in the West around sunrise. Before opposition it rises a bit later, and after opposition a bit earlier.

      How bright will Mars be for the 2018 opposition / close approach?

      Mars will be brighter than Jupiter, and almost 3 times brighter than the brightest star (Sirius) in the night sky. It will approach -2.8 magnitudes for those playing the astronomical apparent brightness game. The only brighter natural objects in the sky will be Venus, the Moon, and the Sun.

      How far away will Mars be at opposition / close approach?

      57.7 million kilometers (35.9 million miles) at opposition, 57.6 million kilometers (35.8 million miles) at close approach.

      How big will Mars be at opposition / close approach?

      At closest approach for the 2018 opposition, Mars will be 24.31 arc seconds in diameter. There are 60 arc seconds in 1 arc minute and 60 arc minutes in 1 degree.

      Mars’ Apparent Brightness Increases As it Gets Closer to Earth
      NASA / JPL-Caltech

      MARS’ APPARENT BRIGHTNESS INCREASES AS IT GETS CLOSER TO EARTH
      In 2018, Mars will appear brightest from July 27 to July 30. Its closest approach to Earth is July 31. That is the point in Mars’ orbit when it comes closest to Earth. Mars will be at a distance of 35.8 million miles (57.6 million kilometers).
      Will I be able to see the disk of Mars with my unaided eyes?

      The angular resolution of the human eye is approximately 1 arc minute which is 60 arc seconds, so no. Mars will appear as a point of light to your eyes.

      Will Mars appear as big as the Full Moon?

      An Internet hoax started in 2003 still rears its head saying that Mars will appear as big as the Full Moon. The Full Moon has an angular diameter of about half a degree or 1800 arc seconds. So, the Full Moon will be about 74 times larger in diameter that the maximum Mars disk size.

      What will Mars look like through a telescope?

      It depends on the telescope. Through a small telescope, you will see Mars as an orange/red disk. Through larger telescopes, features on Mars may be visible, though with the current dust storm on Mars, features will be muted or not visible.

      MARS OPPOSITIONS MORE GENERALLY
      How long is it between successive Mars oppositions?

      Mars oppositions occur about every 26 months.

      Why does Mars appear brighter during some oppositions? Why is Mars closer during some oppositions?

      Mars is closer, and thus appears brighter, as well as bigger through a telescope, during some oppositions primarily because of Mars’ elliptical (non-circular) orbit. If Earth and Mars both had circular orbits, then their minimum distance would be the same. But, particularly Mars has a significantly elliptical orbit. So, if Earth approaches Mars when Mars is closest to the Sun (perihelion), then Earth and Mars are significantly closer than during oppositions when Earth approaches Mars when it is farthest from the Sun (aphelion). 2018 has a perihelic opposition: Mars is near perihelion. The cycle between on perihelic opposition to the next is about 15 to 17 years. The last was 2003 when Mars was particularly close to perihelion so even closer. The next opposition in 2020 will be farther away, and the next ones farther than that through 2027, then they will get closer again until the next perihelic opposition in 2035.

      Mars During Close Approach in 2018 and 2020
      NASA / JPL-Caltech

      MARS DURING CLOSE APPROACH IN 2018 AND 2020
      An artist’s view of the apparent size of Mars during Close Approach in 2018 and 2020.
      What phase does Mars exhibit at opposition?

      It is “Full Mars,” we see the full day side of Mars. Since Mars is farther out from Earth from the Sun we never see Mars as a crescent as we see the Moon or Venus, but we do see phases where we see less of the day side.

      How does the distance from Earth to Mars vary between close oppositions (perihelic) and far oppositions (aphelic)?

      Close oppositions when Mars is near its closest point to the Sun (perihelion) have the Earth and Mars about 56 to 59 million kilometers distant (2003 was 55.76 and 2018 is 57.59). Distant oppositions when Mars is near its farthest point from the Sun (aphelion) have Earth and Mars about 100 to 102 million kilometers distant.

      What other factors affect the varying distances between Earth and Mars at opposition?

      The main factor is significantly non-circular nature of Mars’ orbit, but there are other smaller factors. Earth’s orbit is also non-circular, but to a lesser extent. The orbits of Earth and Mars are slightly tilted with respect to each other. And, particularly affecting long-term, like variations over thousands of years, are tugs on the orbits by other planets, particularly Jupiter’s gravitational effects on Mars’ orbit. It is these latter changes that yielded the 2003 opposition being the closest in nearly 60,000 years. It will be even closer in 2287.

      How does the distance from Earth to Mars vary from its closest to its farthest? How far is Earth from Mars at conjunction and opposition?

      The closest Mars ever gets at opposition is about 56 million km. The farthest Mars gets at conjunction (other side of the Sun from Earth) is about 401 million km. So, Mars’ distance to Earth varies by more than a factor of 7.

      2018 TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE
      What is a total lunar eclipse?

      A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon enters the shadow of the Earth. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon completely enters the darkest part of the Earth’s shadow (the umbra).

      Who will be able to see the total lunar eclipse July 27, 2018?

      Part of the lunar eclipse will be visible from South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. Totality (the Moon completely in the darkest part of the Earth’s shadow called the umbra) will be visible from eastern South America, Europe, Africa, western and central Asia, and western Australia.

      How long will the eclipse last?

      This will be the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century with totality lasting 1 hour and 43 minutes. Totality is often closer to one hour long.

      Will Mars be near the eclipsed Moon?

      Yes, reddish Mars will be near the reddish eclipsed Moon making for a spectacular sight. If you aren’t in the right part of Earth to view the eclipse, you’ll see the uneclipsed Full Moon near Mars. It is coincidental that the eclipse is occurring at the same time as Mars opposition, but with that happening, it is not coincidental they appear near each other. Eclipses happen during Full Moon when the Moon is approximately on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun, and that is the same condition for Mars opposition. Both Full Moons and Mars at opposition will rise around sunset and set around sunrise.

      Why does the Moon appear red during eclipse, sometimes called a Blood Moon?

      Red light makes it through the outer edges of the Earth’s atmosphere and is bent towards the Moon by the atmosphere. See this Random Space Fact video for more.

      THE RED HUE OF A LUNAR ECLIPSE
      Why isn’t the Moon pitch black during a total lunar eclipse? Dr. Bruce Betts has this week’s Random Space Fact!

      OTHER PLANETS TO VIEW
      What other planets are visible near Mars Opposition?

      In the sky in late July and August you’ll also be able to see 3 other planets with just your eyes. In the early evening, you can see super bright Venus in the West, then walking your eyes across the southern sky from East to West you’ll see bright Jupiter, dimmer but fairly bright yellowish Saturn, and then magnificent Mars in the West. Venus is the brightest. Jupiter is usually brighter than Mars but not during this period.

      So, GO OUT AND LOOK UP!

    • I believe this article was written by Babylon Bee.

    • Anybody who believes this crap is either a crackhead and/or a gullible retard

  1. You may want to recheck the figure of “32 million light years” mentioned towards the end of the article, I do believe you forgot a decimal point somewhere. 32 million light years from Earth would not make Mars visible to the naked eye from Earth.

    • Mars isn’t any number of “light years” from Earth unless you have a hell of a lot of zeros immediately after your decimal point! I think the article meant to say “32 million miles” (one of several errors in this atrocious article).

      • Indeed.. utter nonsense..

      • You’re right! 32 million miles not light years. Mars is not even 1 light year from Earth. Too bad we can’t get a manned space craft off to Mars when it is this close. Too bad we don’t have the rechnology developed to get to Mars in a few days or better yet few hours. That would make colonizing Mars a breeze and would make it very viable in a very short time.

        • Yea Jerry, so we can destroy another planet…

        • At the speed of light, it takes apoxomatly 8 min. And 30 seconds to travel 93 million miles (distance from the Sun to the earth) so that means less than 5 minutes for light to travel from earth to mars

        • No shit. It’s about 10-20 light minutes depending on where we are in orbit.

        • Charles Johnston

          I will go out on a limb and declare that we will NEVER get to Mars for a whole lot of reasons. We are wasting tons of money trying to figure out how to do the impossible.

        • holy shit, you all need to go back to school.

        • Human beings were born from the earth, our natural habitat – as all living things, both plant and animal – that have emerged from the earth’s ecosystem. It appears that the universe does not intend for us to live elsewhere, since we cannot do so naturally and without creating and artificial habitat that mimics what earth has naturally provided. Agreed that tax dollars spent on making Mars a habitation is a tragic waste of money.

      • Lol yes indeed but my Mathematics has Mars at approximately 49,000,000 miles from Earth. Earth is approximately 93,000,000 miles from the Sun and Mars is approximately 142,000,000 miles from the Sun.

    • Thanks for posting that, I was just thinking how impossible that could be.

  2. FAKE BS – Stop propagating garbage please.

    • please read the About section: About
      This ScienceInfo.news website is the English version of the French ScienceInfo.fr scientific information website.

      Now, all you need is to be just a little curious and click on this link to find out that this scientific information site publishes totally false or sensationally fake information, which is, moreover, not true at all.

      Let it be said once and for all: the site ScienceInfo.news is a parody, satirical, unnerving and shameless site.

      All information presented herein is, unfortunately for some and fortunately for others, totally fabricated.

      In short, everything here is false. This includes names and quotes attributed to imaginary people or companies.

      If the activites and quotes are attributed to real people as well as real facts about them, they are obviously false and devised to emphasize the grotesque nature of articles.

      In short, do not believe everything you are told and, even more so, everything you read on the internet. Keep alert… and remember to smile

  3. Absolute rubbish

  4. Why are you peddling this crap?

  5. Mars will be the fourth brightest object in the sky. But it won’t be as “big as the moon.”

  6. Stop the bullshit “reporting.”

  7. Ummm…. Mars is already bigger than the Moon. But if this is suggesting that it will ‘appear’ as large as the Moon, no.
    Not going to happen unless Mars suddenly hops about 50 million kilometers closer to us. That wouldn’t be good.
    Please, if you’re going to have ‘science’ in your title, try using some. Or is this a joke site?

  8. Okay, this site is hilarious. Bravo!

  9. Stop spreading crap.
    This is been a hoax for like, forever.
    You should be ashamed for not verifying this before posting it.

  10. Raymond J Stinson

    Bogus. Mars will never look as big as our Moon. At conjunction every 26 months, Mars comes within a few million miles of Earth. Our moon is at best around 250,000 miles from Earth. Both Earth and Mars are in Elliptical Orbits around the sun on a rotating frame of reference. The Ellipse conjunction came close in 2003 but that will not happen again for quite some time. Before you believe this drivel, Ask an Astronomer or at least someone qualified to explain what is going on. Don’t believe everything you hear.

  11. Mars is not a star.

  12. This is FALSE. Contact an astronomer and get your information right before publishing trash.

  13. Bullshit. Stop posting and promulgating this crap.

    • Never forget that YOU elected Trump president 🙂

      • And don’t forget that we’re now so much better in 2 years than in 8 years with that idiot Obama!

      • So you fuck up by about 32 million light years and push a bullshit story, get called out on it and you blame Trump supporters? Good one dickhead. Remember you wanted Hillary. Loser

      • And proud of it idiot!

      • That just goes to show Trump supporters have more brains than the admin of this site and the author of this article.

      • Yes… Intelligent people who don’t believe eveything we read on the internet do.

      • Suffering From Trump Unacceptance & Resistance Disorder (TURD)?
        Know the signs, spot the symptoms, and save a life!
        TURD is a pattern of pathologically disassociative and psychotic behavior,
        first observed in the late hours of November 8th 2016, and increasing in severity with passing time.
        Sufferers of TURD often exhibit pronounced cognitive dissonance, sudden bouts of rage, rioting, and uncontrollable crying.
        People with TURD are characterized by a persistent unwillingness to accept that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again.

      • Sure did. And which of us posted the story that any grade schooler could see is pure bunk…? 🤔

        Even still, it doesn’t take grade school-caliber mental faculty to search Google and learn for yourself why it’s silly to think it’s possible for Mars to appear as large as Earth’s moon…from Earth.

        Instead, you opt to randomly, cheaply, and irrelevantly lob a political insult where none is warranted or even a little bit related to the garbage you posted without so much as a cursory fact-check. Normally I’d advise you to find a different line of work, but someone who thinks the planet Mars is 32 million light-years from Earth is probably gonna be a total failure at whatever they try.

        At least you’re good at one thing: making Trump voters look even better. Keep up the good work.

      • What the hell does having Trump in office have to do with you posting an idiotic story?

  14. This story is a complete hoax.. I’ve seen it every year since 2003

  15. Thank you. Friend in Canada alerted me to your article. For days I have been very aware of size of Mars where I live in Tasmania, soythern hemisphere.

  16. Can’t wait to see this!

  17. Sounds like fake news to me. In 2018, Mars will appear brightest from July 27 to July 30. Its closest approach to Earth is July 31. That is the point in Mars’ orbit when it comes closest to Earth. Mars will be at a distance of 35.8 million miles (57.6 million kilometers). The diameter of Mars is about twice that of the moon but at this time will still be about 162 times farther from the earth than the moon.

  18. This is total bull.
    Are you really a science website? Don’t spread false info.

    https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/mars-spectacular/

  19. July 27, 2018, the planet Mars will be as big as the Moon

  20. This is a lie.

  21. Completely false, come on

  22. What time will I be able to watch this with my kids I live in Fairmont West Virginia

    • Its fake. Jesus you west Virginians will believe anything

    • So sad you put where you are from. West Virginia has enough of a bad reputation for being dumb hillbillies without this!

      • I’ve been reading all the comments and found them quite entertaining. But then your comment saying that people from West Virginia are dumb hillbillies is the comment of a Trumpty supporter. They get very defensive and throw out insults and profanity (which I might add is worse than a delinquent child) when they don’t like or hear what others say. Trumpty can’t spell, has the mental age of a 5 year old and can’t put a sentence together without completing it and then going off on a rant about Hillary and Obama! Trumpty wants to be a dictator because he loves being in control without caring for any of the consequences. He is self important, a liar, a sexist pig and in cahoots with Putin, whom recently admitted interfering with the election because he wanted Trumpty to win. He’s a disgrace to America and is making America a laughing stock with the foolishness that comes out of his mouth and how he belittles people with disabilities, people of colour, women etc. Hell the list could go on. Anyway I’ve said more than I expected but can’t help it when I see so many of you Trumpty supporter’s attack someone for having an opinion! Looking forward to seeing Trumpty’s impeachment when Muller has finished his amazing work.

    • Never o’clock.

  23. 32million light years?

  24. Mary Jane Rastaman

    What the hell is this shit?

  25. If you publish nonsense like this, there are going to be some innocent people believing it. How about I bet you a million dollars that it is not true.?

  26. Disgraceful, unscientific, fake-news-posting and completely irresponsible, cockwombles.

    Grow up and stop posting more BS in a world whos media is already saturated with the stuff.

    Pathetic attempts to draw publicity like this will simply backfire and result in people leaving in droves. Good luck with your “science” “info” webshite from now on.

  27. Reading these comments is even more hilarious than the article itself 😂

    • LOL! I know!! Too funny! 🤣

    • LMAO ON ALL THESE COMMENTS. …A LOT OF PEOPLE SEEM TO KNOW EVERYTHING. …..AND FOR SOME REASON THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ARTICLE , TRUMP IS INVOLVED !!!!!!!

    • Officer Stoney O'Riefer

      Been rotflmao for 30mins now reading these. People have completely lost their minds. Everyone is angry and lashing out at eachother. There are sites to vent this. This is a farce on physical science. What I think you guys are looking for are the political science jokesters.

  28. To all the absolute moronic idiots posting “fake new” and “BS” comments. Educate yourself and read about the site:

    “Now, all you need is to be just a little curious and click on this link to find out that this scientific information site publishes totally false or sensationally fake information, which is, moreover, not true at all.”

    Stupid people will doom us all.

  29. Total crap 32 million light years would put it 320000 times farther away than the other side of our galaxy you cant even see stars that far away without a telescope!

  30. This is as funny as the Trans-Continental Canal Project that was supposed to put a mile-wide, mile-deep canal through the United States from Asbury Park, NJ to San Francisco CA.

  31. This is FAKE news!! WHY OH WHY would you post this BS???!!! SHame on you!!

  32. Ridiculous. Why do you share this tripe? Blocking this website.

    • Never forget that YOU elected trump president 🙂

      • We won’t forget that. We wake up smiling every day! So happy that we didn’t end up with a psychopath who would be the envy of Al Capone. We’ll take our pompous business man over a crazy serial killer, owned by Soros, any day!!

  33. I’ll keep it simple. BULLSHIT.

  34. Please do not spread this misinformation. Mars never was and will never be as big as the Moon in the sky. Any person with the slightest speck of education and common sense can figure that out. PLEASE educate yourselves, instead of posting both laughably and worryingly wrong articles. PLEASE! This claim is so incredibly preposterous that anyone with a single functioning brain cell would understand that even an amoeba is brilliant compared to the subhuman insult to all intelligent creatures that had the audacity to post this garbage as fact. PLEASE DO NOT POST THAT TRASH AGAIN! Some of us are ACTUALLY studying the sky and this waste of words that you dare to call an article is the biggest insult to our intelligence and actual, real world research!

    • Well then.
      It just came to my attention that this entire site is comedic and I just didn’t get the joke.
      Maybe… I am the fool. -.-“

      • No, you are not the fool. Satire or parody involves humour in some way, poking fun at peoples’ ignorance or stupidity; they provide insight or a new way of looking at old things.

        There is nothing here that is remotely funny, insightful, or witty. In other words, they can’t even do satire or parody correctly. The writers need to spend some quality time reading The Onion to see how to do satire correctly. Even World Weekly News has better parody than this atonal piece.

    • Never forget that YOU elected trump president 🙂

  35. I have to call this out. This is a hoax that has been circulating since 2003. Yes, Mars will be at opposition from July 27th to August 3rd and it will be the closest and brightest it has been in 15 years but it will not appear as big as the moon. Stop recirculating inaccurate astronomy stories. Here’s info from a real, reputable science/astronomy source.

    https://www.space.com/41053-mars-opposition-blood-moon-lunar-eclipse-july-2018.html

  36. You slipped in identifying “astrologers” instead of “astronomers” in the fifth paragraph. Not llikely that astrologers could come up with a string of words like that.

  37. Er, was this when the Martians came to planet Earth, 35,000 years ago?

  38. Completely accurate and factual info! Thanks, and it’s only 7000 light-years to get some popcorn to watch this!!

  39. How do they know when this was last like this, who was keeping records then, I think you want me to believe a bunch of poo

  40. Lol, this hoax has been a round for nearly 20 years

  41. This is COMPLETELY False. Mars (a planet) will NEVER look as large as the Moon. Complete Crap. Mars distance from Earth vastly varies depending on where each is in it’s orbit around the Sun at any given point. The Moon’s distance varies little because it is in orbit around the Earth. Mars can NEVER appear as large as the Moon. IMPOSSIBLE. Please stop producing STUPID articles like this.

  42. What a shit lie article this crap is. to many lies to want to mention. Crap reporting by a child.

  43. FAKE NEWS. Stop spreading this shit!

  44. amdromeda is only 2.5 million LY’s away, so this would place Mars out past Orion

  45. “Never forget that YOU elected trump president 🙂” – That repeated comment from the Admin explains why their “science” is fake.

  46. Read the headlines next to the “Breaking News” at the top of this page and you’ll KNOW that this is a satirical website, e.g. “Geologists discover a natural mineral spring of Coca-Cola in the Yellowstone National Park”. Yeah, right.

  47. Alastair Browne

    I studied the solar system all my life. This is TOTAL CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. Hahahahahahahaha!!!!! Too funny! If you’re taking this as a serious article… SHAME ON YOU! It is satire and really quite good.

    • It is supposed to be satire, but they don’t have a grasp on what actual satire is. This isn’t satire at all. They need to consult a dictionary, at the very least.

  49. No Sean pendejos scienceinfo!

  50. I’ve told facebook this is fake news.

    • PEOPLE, WAKE UP! GET THE WAX OUT OF YOUR EARS & LISTEN. THIS WEBSITE IS A SATIRICAL SITE. IT PLAINLY STATES AS SUCH. IT IS A JOKE! LAUGH, HAVE FUN & DON’T BE SO SERIOUS ALL THE TIME!

  51. What a load of bollocks. This article is so full of inaccuracies it may as well have been written by a child with no education.

  52. Made me think of Howard on Big Bang Theory when he mooned his girlfriend. “Tonight there will be two moons in the sky!” LMBO!

    • Please can someone tell me please if this is 35,000 years ago or what ever how did they get that picture it must of been digital made up

    • Please can someone tell me please if this is 35,000 years ago or what ever how did they get that picture it must of been digital made up

  53. Do you get your info from Trump or what…?

  54. It will appear as a reddish-orange star, no larger. It will NOT be as big as the moon (unless you look through a powerful telescope–maybe you forgot that SMALL DETAIL.). Why would you write such utter bullshit? Are you crazy?

  55. FAKE NEWS

  56. If memory serves Mars is at a distance of 12.5 light minutes or 1.5 AU astronomical units this article is complete rubbish

  57. I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and shit out a more accurate article than you guys write.

  58. This single article shows me the quality of this web site. I will not be visiting again. This is not science!

  59. I highly suggest you all click on the about tab up at the top of the page to learn more about hese amazing science communicators. I for one will be out with my camera on the 27th to capture this once in a 34 millenia event.

  60. This almost like when all of you Hillary dip-shit backer said Trump didnt have a chance – Well – you dumb ass-holes were wrong I hears one reply — ” Wait and see ” —————– I dont know if this will happen or not & neither do you — “WAIT AND SEE “

    This article is so very obviously full of astrological impossibilities. Stop spreading satire!!!! Do you actually believe the inhabitants of Earth are capable of questioning what they read on the internet? (You moron!). I am shocked and disgusted that anyone should question the wisdom of voting for Trump.
    The salient detail you omitted to report was that Mars will NOT REALLY be as big as the moon, it will just APPEAR TO BE AS BIG on that night because Mars (as now realised) is made up of 96% water. Its brilliant appearance on the 27th is merely an illusion, based on the reflection of light on the ice crystals on its surface. These start to dissolve on the 28th as Mars begins to move closer to the Sun – so if anyone tries to observe Mars on any date after that it will just appear its normal, small size the sky. Still, good reason that we WOULD want to make sure this event is not missed – I’ll be up all night to make sure I catch the ‘LOVE IN ACTION NOW’ lovefest.
    PS – Don’t believe the crap being reported on sites such as this: https://www.metabunk.org/mars-will-be-as-big-as-the-moon-no-it-wont.t9879/

  64. They called Mars a star. 😂😂😂

  65. I love how up in arms everyone is getting about this being a hoax. If any bothered to check out the “About” page on scienceinfo.news they would soon realize that this entire website is a self proclaimed hoax!

  71. It happened the night we elected Trump but we didn’t see cause were watching Trump spank Hillary!!!

  72. This article is totally wrong

  73. Hey People that are slamming this article: if you bothered to investigate the site at all and do you OWN RESEARCH you would realize this is a satirical/parody website. Go to their “About Us” tab and you would realize that!! GEEZ!! Lighten up people!

  74. Haha, too funny, there are people in the US that would believe this. Yet you call the ones who question it Trump supporters?!?!?! I would say you are equal with who you accuse. Have fun praying on the uneducated people who live on this planet!

  75. Eric in Seattle

    What a bunch of bullshit! This is a word salad of terms that literally make no sense but might sound impressive to someone who doesn’t know anything about astronomy. For those of us who do, it’s ridiculous.

    And no, Mars will NOT appear anywhere near as large as the moon. At its peak it will be around 25 arc seconds in diameter, while the moon is around 1,800.

    It’s a sad commentary on the dismal state of science education that people will believe crap like this….

    • This is a PARODY and SATIRICAL site….YES it’s FAKE….YES it’s NOT real….IT’S on PURPOSE !! All of you getting all HOT and bothered about it and getting soooo mad….Check the “About” section!!….Sheesh

  76. What in the bleep. Alright, who wrote this, I could write a better article with only 5 minutes of real research. I mean, do you pay for this stuff? Because, I will write a better article than this if you pay me lol.

  77. give me some of that good mind bending shit might cop a good moon burn party hearty America 420

  78. PEOPLE, WAKE UP! GET THE WAX OUT OF YOUR EARS & LISTEN. THIS WEBSITE IS A SATIRICAL SITE. IT PLAINLY STATES AS SUCH. IT IS A JOKE! LAUGH, HAVE FUN & DON’T BE SO SERIOUS ALL THE TIME!

  79. But, they use a lot of fancy scientific words (apochromatic, altazimutal, analemmic, anomaly, circumstellar, elliptic, conjunction of coercive neuronal elongation) it must be true! And let’s not forget, they used the adjusted Lambert Benchmark for extra accuracy.

  80. Maybe it will get so close you can put mars up your ass…

  81. The truth is out there

  82. you have mistaken Mars with the planet Nibiru…

  83. And the artical said Neanderthals and Cro Magnon co existed together. Trying to put in a racial theme. ‘Under a blood red sky. A crowd had gathered black and white.’ A U 2 song. The author of this science article needs all sorts of help.

  84. The admin is making fun of the commenters denunciation of the scientific validity of this post simply because they themselves did not take the time to discover that this is a satire site and the author already knows this is fake and it is for humor purposes only. What I do find funny is that the admin associates this stupidity with trump support with the commenters denying such support whereas I am one of the few saying this and I DID vote for Trump!

  85. I understand this isn’t real, but where does it state this is gag website? I can’t find it.

  86. Martian attack incoming…

  87. I bet 32,000,000,000 bitcoins that this article is out of touch with reality.

  88. Is this fake news? Mars isn’t a star!

  89. Imposdible! While Mars is nearly twice the size in diameter of the moon, Mars can never appear as big as the moon because of its distance from Earth. Even when Mars reaches its closest point to Earth during its orbit — its so-called close approach — it’s expected to be about 35.8 million miles away. By contrast, the moon is an average of 238,855 miles away from the Earth.

    • This is a PARODY and SATIRICAL site….YES it’s FAKE….YES it’s NOT real….IT’S on PURPOSE !! All of you getting all HOT and bothered about it and getting soooo mad….Check the “About” section!!….Sheesh

    Assholes. Go into a big scientific reason why it will appear big and then call the basic Facebook user stupid. Screw you and your so called science page. Its a long lunar eclipse and Mars is close to earth. Nothing more. Stop being a bunch of dicks!

    • Can you tell which time zone for the view at midnight. I’d my grandson to see. I live in Western Kentucky. Central Time zone

  91. How many Uranus comments have been made? Chalk this one up to another. It’s always a zinger.

  92. Was hoping that someone was able to catch it.
