marsAstronomers claim that on August 27th Mars will approach Earth at a minimum distance.

According to some sources in the network in August Mars will look larger than a full moon, as the distance between Earth and the Red Planet will be the shortest.

In 2003, Mars approached Earth on the shortest distance from 57,617 BC. Chr. Next time with such approaching will be in 2287, wrote „24SMI“.

According to astronomers, however, on August 27th, on the sky Mars will not be visible in the same size like Moon, because it is not possible under these circumstances, that exist in the solar system. If Mars approaches to the distance, good enough such an event to be observed, its gravity will have a devastating effect on our planet.

The diameter of Mars is approximately twice the diameter of our Moon. That is why to look the same size in the sky, Mars should be at a distance two times bigger then the distance between the Earth and the Moon.
It should be had in mind that Mars has nine times bigger mass than the Мoon. He will act on our blue planet with its gravity twice stronger than the Мoon. This would cause unprecedented catastrophes on our planet.
