Double moon?
 
I dunno, this might be a load of old bollocks, or it might be something funky to make you think you live on Luke Skywalker's planet.....

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 of earth. Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am . It will look like the earth has 2 moons. The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

Wow, didn't expect you to fall for that one.

It's fake.

Check it out on snopes.

Actually there was some truth to it, but that event passed several years ago.

well it is a con with little consequence

at least i didn't empty my bank account to the 'God of War fund' or anything.....

good thing too that i added the caveat 'this might be a load of bollocks...':D

Yeah, there's this dude Nigel (or buttface, polesmoker, something like that) that has stumbled on this rare opportunity. He'll give me $400 million dollars if I just pay a few thousand to help him move the money...:rolleyes:

^^^don't you mean, there's this dude from Nigeria who will send you 10% of 100 million dollars if you send him your current account details?
