Mars to Get Close to Earth on 8/27?

Will Mars make a remarkably close approach to Earth on August twenty-seventh this year? No. Mars did make a close approach to Earth over ten years ago. Regardless, when Mars comes “close” to Earth every fifteen to seventeen years, it doesn’t appear significantly larger in the sky like the claim implies. http://www.snopes.com/science/astronomy/brightmars.asp
