    I would doubt it...

    If we were going to see mars, we would see it today.. since the speed of the orbit of mars + earth... i doubt it would be there one day then gone... it would be there for about 3 - 5 nights?
    i dunno, just a guess

    Did you not read the link that you posted. It plainly called it out as a hoax. You had to go all the way to page 6. How could we photograph a non existant phenomenom.

    Ok thanks,

    Some people still say that it will happen so that's why I wanted your opinion.

    Thanks.

    Mars was at it closest in 2003 and, will not be as close again for another 6000 years. You might try catching it next time. While it was close you still needed a telescope to see any detail and, the detail was much nicer when I looked at it then.
