    Yea, I don't know about snopes' reputation anymore, though...lots of controversy and negative publicity.

    NASA says it's a hoax that Mars will be that close.  However, according to Spaceweather.com:

       Tonight, at the stroke of midnight, go outside an look southeast. The nearly full Moon and Jupiter are having a lovely close encounter. The two brightest objects in the night sky are only only 6o apart!

    The confluence of 5 Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays in one month is interesting though.
