Here is a valid link

I am not distrubing my previous post, it goes on here..

Planet Mars will be brightest in the night sky starting August. It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will culminate on August 27 when Mars comes to within 35 million miles of earth. Be sure to watch the sky on August 27 12:30am. It will look like the Earth has two moons. The next time Mars will be this close is in 2287. Share this with your loved ones and friends as NO ONE ALIVE TODAY will ever see it again.

I'm afraid your Blog post is in error. You've linked to an article of mine from 2003, when Mars was very close to Earth. However, even then, it was not as large as the Moon. Check out the real story at http://space.about.com/od/astronomynews/a/marsclose2005.htm
