Two Moons 2010 – The Two Moons 2010: Moon and Mars August 27, 2010 is an urban legend and a creation of fiction. The claim that Mars will be as large or close to the size of the moon and are near each other is false and unfounded.

The first version of the “Two Moons: Moon and Mars” appeared in the summer of 2003. At that time the news was indeed roughly accurate. On August 27, 2003, the oscillating orbits of Mars and Earth bring the two planets closer together in the last 50,000 years. AT tat time the moon and Mars became the brightest objects in the sky.

The claim however that Mars would appear “as large as the full moon to the naked eye” did not occur and its size was far exaggerated. In 2005, 2006 and 2007 the same news and text went wild again and became once again popular. Those who waited became frustrated since the news was actually false.

The inaccurate news flooded the internet under the header, “Two Moons on August 27” in 2008, and as a slide show entitled “Mars Spectacular” in 2009.

Now, it is 2010 and the same news seems to catch the fancy of people around the world. The truth is there is nothing spectacular predicted for 2010 and there are no two moons on August 27, 2010.
