    I hope you do realize, that the original article was intended for August 27, 2003:

    Unfortunately I'm busy. I'll catch it on it's way past next time ;);).

    (seriously though I'm hopefully going to take some cool photos with a friend who has a nice selection of telescopes - in october though).

    Ummm... did you read the link? It's referring to an August 2003 event.

    It does say that late October 2005 will be good too, just not as good as it was in 2003. I couldn't leave you there in the dark looking upward for Mars on Aug 27, 2005... "Now, where'd I put that Mars? It was right here a millenium ago." Sorry. :(

    Man, I hate it when that happens. My bad. I'd seen the October reference some time last June, when we just returned Stateside, but actually did not catch the 2003 back reference. My bad. Where have I been? Out of the country, but that's no excuse. I won't plead ignorance on this one. No pleading is necessary. So, it's October(ish) and (not as close)?

    And it's total BS, the only way mars could appear as large as the full moon were if it were much, much closer to Earth, at a distance in fact that the gravity would affect the tides so much entire cities would be destroyed.

    It's just totally wrong.
