That's NOT the Moon....

Recently, according to astrologists, Earth and Mars are closer than they ever get for thousands of years. Because of this, for a short time, Mars has been appearing as large as a full moon in the sky.

Maybe you've noticed. I noticed, but didn't realize what I was looking at, at first.I thought to myself, "Wow, the moon looks awfully orange tonight."

This is pretty much what I saw:

Then I noticed the real moon was also out. What the fuck? Well folks, that's Mars we've been seeing. And it will be many thousands of years before it's that close again, so enjoy it while it lasts.

I need to take you up on this, but haven't yet. If only he would leave so we can pull out of Iraq!
