Sorry hon, but this is an urban legend that's been going around for years. It's completely false. http://www.snopes.com/science/mars.asp I've gotten these e-mails every year for the last 4 years. The actual event happened back on Aug. 27, 2003 and yes it was very big and bright..... if you were looking at it thru a telescope. With the naked eye it was not much different than usual.
