The Whole World is waiting for the Two moons on August 27

Double moons in the sky
Two moons on 27th August
27th Aug the Whole World is waiting for....
Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August. It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will cultivate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles off earth. Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 @ 11:00 PM (UAE Local Time). It will look like the earth has 2 moons.
The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

It sounds amazing! Can it possibly be true?
No. It can’t. The email and photo are perpetuating a hoax that rears its crazy head every summer. The hoax has circulated every summer since 2003. Eleven years running! That’s a long time for a hoax to run, in our world of information.
Mars can never appear as large as a full moon as seen from Earth. The moon will not be full on August 27, 2014 (you might spot it briefly as a thin crescent in the west after sunset, though). And Mars will not be at its brightest or closest in August of 2014, or at any time in 2014. In 2014, Mars is closest to Earth on April 8, but it won’t be as close this year as in some years.

Analysis: The text of this rumor was semi-accurate when the earliest version of it first began circulating in the summer of 2003. It was outdated by the time it went around again in 2005, however, and just plain false when it appeared for the third and fourth times in 2006 and 2007.
It was false again when it came back under the header "Two Moons on August 27" in 2008, and false yet again when it returned as a PowerPoint slide show titled "Mars Spectacular" in 2009, 2010, 2011, etc. In 2013, yet another version made the rounds with a new image attached. How many times can a "once in a lifetime" event occur?

Here are the facts. Ten years ago, on August 27, 2003, the oscillating orbits of Mars and Earth did, in fact, bring the two planets closer together than at any other time during the past 50,000 years. And though Mars never actually appeared "as large as the full moon to the naked eye" — not even close (and not even possible) — it was indeed, for a rare few days in 2003, among the brightest objects in the night sky.

October 2005 brought another well-publicized "close encounter," though in that case Earth and Mars were 13 million kilometers further apart than during the 2003 event.

Nothing so spectacular is predicted for 2014.
