The Return of The Bride of the Son of the Zombie Mars Hoax that will not Die

Early morning sky on Saturday August 29 looking east as seen from Adelaide at 6:30 ACST showing Mars and Venus just above the horizon.  Similar views will be seen elsewhere in Australia at the equivalent local time. (click to embiggen).

Here we are again! The Mars hoax is circulating once more. No, Mars will not be as big as the full Moon, there will be no double Moon in the sky. In fact, Mars is far from opposition and is quite small (it won't be at opposition again until 22 May, 2016 nearly 8 months).

However, on August 27, in the early morning Mars, Venus and Procyon form a nice triangle although Mars will be very difficult to see in the twilight  (the image above is at 6:30 am ACST, as seen from Adelaide).

For an overveiw of what the Mars hoax is and why it is so wrong, see the Return of the Zombie Mars Hoax that will not Die.
