Cupac82, do you have a source for this information?
This is quite a notorious little rumour that pops up this time every year, since 2003, when this actually was the case. After following it up (I love all this space stuff), I read that the closest Mars will be this year will be around the December 18th mark, where it will still not be as close as it was in '03, when even then it was far from being the size of the Moon, instead being 144 times the distance of the moon. A telescope is still needed, as it only looks like a large red star.
Disappointing, I know.
