Mars as Big as the Moon this August?? I Wouldn’t Count On It…

April 29th, 2009 by Matthew Leach

That’s a bummer…

Snopes.com released the truth regarding a phony e-mail widely circulated throughout the internet. If you received something that has to do with Mars appearing as big as the moon this August and this event being the only one you’ll witness in your lifetime…DELETE IT. It’s a phony.

To read the Snopes article (which is a great site to check if some e-mails you get are spam) click here. Scott Sistek, author of the KOMO 4 Weather Blog on komotv.com, investigated this story further and has some interesting things to say. Click here if you’re interested.

The weather for the next couple of days will, however, be something to get excited about as a brief bout with partly/mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures is in the forecast. Unfortunately these pleasant mild days are in the forecast for tomorrow and Friday, not the weekend, which has gone back to the cloudy/gloomy/wet theme. Highs won’t be incredibly cold over the weekend though as they’ll stay in the 60s.

Cool, cloudy and showery weather continues into next week leaving the first several days of May quite cooler than normal.

Hmmm…I guess it’s a good thing that Mars e-mail was a hoax. At this rate we wouldn’t even be able to see it anyway! :)
