Mars is Going to Be the Closest to Earth Then Ever Before in Recorded History–Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
The eRumor says that Mars is going to be close to the earth in July and August, the closest in recorded history, maybe the closest in more than 60,000 years, and will be the brightest object in the sky apart from the moon.
This story was true in 2003. It has circulated every summer since then.
The 2007 version called the event “Two moons on 27 August.”
