this is gonna nice to see...
    #4425092 - 07/19/05 09:27 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

The Red Planet is about to be spectacular. This month and next, Earth is
catching up with Mars in a encounter that will culminate in the closest
approach between the two planets in recorded histroy. The next time Mars may
come this close in in 2287. Due to the way Jupiter's gravity tugs on Mars
and perturbs its orbit (Geez, I knew that!), 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. You don't want to
miss it!

The encounter will culminate on August 27th when Mars come 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.

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 10 p.m., and
reach its azimuth (hope that's in my dictionary)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 12:30 a.m. That's pretty
convenient to see something 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.

very cool.  i need a good telescope to see EVEN MORE! :smile:


--------------------
A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.

Is it really going to look as big as the moon? I don't think it will.

Mars is already bright, but if it gets as big as the moon, game over....for life as we know it.
