  1. The third one looks like the moon has Death’s face on it

  2. hahah thats funny if you look at it the moon has two dots on everyone of them in the same exact place and the third one where he said looks like a death face looks like a skull!!!!! agh!

  3. I believe what you’re seeing is called the Man in the Moon here in the U.S. I haven’t heard what they call it in other places, but if you know, please share. OK, thanks very much.

  4. whats the big deal its the moon

  5. Gus, did you click on the links? This post is about the so-called effect a full moon has on people. Oh yes, and werewolves.

  6. moon.. yeah we got that here too. effects, wolves, cheese. um.. ok. whats REALLY trippy is if you look at the intros to that tv show The Honey Mooners, if you look carefully, at the moon theres a face there too. i think it looks like jackie gleason. and that was decades ago! i got goosebumps. (lol)

  7. Does the moon really get this close to earth?

  8. We call it the Girl in the Moon, because it rather looks like a female face to us. I’m from Eastern Europe and I can clearly see a girl. A pretty sad girl or annoyed. The Girl in the Moon doesn’t seem happy.

  9. Sure, the moon has some strange effects on the Earth… and us, animals and other things.
    Strange facts for you…
    1) we onle ever see one side of the moon
    2) on closr inspection they found that the moon might be hollow
    3) they found large metal discs in some of the crators in the moon’s surface.
    3) there are more UFO sightings around the moon then on earth (I got that off some NASA astronaut’s confession papers! Don’t ask questions, it is posted somewhere… saw it once, printed it but I lost the sheets and I can’t find the web site)

  10. Say, Johan, maybe this? http://www.ironsky.net/

    Hollow moon, metal discs, UFOs. It all adds up. But jokes aside, you are going to have to back your statements up with more than “… posted somewhere…saw it once…”

  11. do you guys even know that the moon was once SPLITTED in HALF by our PROPHET MUHAMMAD(PBUH)?

    YES or NO Or do you guys want some prove…..

  12. Yes. Tell us what you know about the moon.

  13. well go on this website m8 http://moomeen.blogspot.com/2009/03/miracle-of-prophet-muhammad-pbuh.html
    AND that will be your prove
    its been proven by scientist
    READ ALL of it

  14. isn’t it a TRUE miracle guys which has been done by our prophet muhammad (pbuh) long time ago
    YES or NO

  15. No. You’re mixing science and faith. So a handful of people saw the moon split in the 6th or 7th century. Just a handful, in and around Mecca. Not the entire world? Leaving every superstitious one of them freaked out for 1000 years? No. What you are passing along is a story that was always interpreted as a parable until someone saw photos of the moon. The “split” reminded them of the verse, and that urge to use science to prove faith popped up once again.

    Miracles do not need science, because there is no such thing as a miracle in science. You are wasting your time looking for proof to justify your faith. Let them both thrive, if you want. One does not have to cancel out the other.

  16. so you are trying to say the miracle was not true

    i know that miracles dont need scienctific prove but this was proven by non muslims(geologist). they have said it themselves that”this couldn’t be unless the moon was once split and resealed.”

    1400 years ago our prophet splitted the moon and resealed it himselve and this is what us muslims believe in and im not wasting my time looking for prove.

  17. the moon splitting is only one evidence of the moon splitting, plus this was discussed on bbc, which u can get the history of it, 2 astronomers discussing the rock belt GOING INSIDE the earth meanning it was split. if u split something say a ruler and join it together u see the crack the place where it was joined together, and this rockybelt is the crack, now whether u believe in it or not, it is none of our problem, as said in the Holy Qur’an that we are not guardians over u, and Allah guards to His light whomever He wills.
    there are uncountable eveidence (signs) of Allah that can prove His existence, if u want to believe, e.g., research what the Qur’an says on how the hearth and the heavens were created, i’ll give u the first stage in Qur’an Allah states” Then We turned to heaven when it was a SMOKE” then go on if u want to find the truth and not just making excuses for ur disbelief, ur more than welcome to ask questions and learn, but please learn how to not torment the truth, but rather find out about the truth.

  18. tell me if it is not a miracle how can a moon split by itself and then rejoin together?

  19. We as Muslims, don’t need material proof of miracles. Thanks to Allah (or God, if you have a problem with pronunciation), we believe that Muhammad (SAW – may Peace and Blessings be upon him) was granted this miracle to “support” him in his preaching to the unbelievers at that time.

    If you want to see a miracle which is all around you, and everyone, just look at your own body, and how the food you (enjoy!) eat is processed and turned into energy to walk, talk, take photos and comment on them. And then look at your eyes… I could go on…

  20. OK, my nameless visitor. You asked if we wanted to hear some proof on the split moon. I said, Yes, tell us what you know. Then once you told us you asked, is it a true miracle? YES or NO. You asked me, so I told you what I thought. I said no. I don’t like to argue with people that visit my blog. Sometimes I argue, but not on this. I don’t think I even heard of the moon splitting until you mentioned it. It is an interesting idea, but I don’t think it happened, that’s all. You believe in miracles, but I don’t. So we disagree, so what?

    This post isn’t about miracles, it isn’t about religion. It’s about whether crime rates or birthrates go up during a full moon.


  22. hi well i didn’t read what ur talking about but i just saw the full monn’s pic & i like it im one of the biggest moon’s lovers I LOOOOVE IT i LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it woooow thnx to the personne who posted those pics thanx a lot =)

  23. WHAT really happened on the MOON?
    Astronauts reveal encounters with ETs and UFOs

    Part 1 of 3

    After reaching the Holy Grail of space exploration, NASA suddenly and unexpectedly stopped all moon missions after Apollo 17. WHY?

    While most westerners have in some ways been shielded from UFO stories by the major media groups over the past several decades, the people in the USSR have been far more exposed to these ideas. To the average Russian, UFO and alien stories are not strange at all. Russian television dedicated much of its airtime to programmes surrounding sightings and abductions and other interaction with so-called aliens. It is therefore not surprising that there are more recorded sightings of UFOs and aliens in the old USSR (Russia and its new brothers) than any other country. If my memory serves me right, at the height of its TV exposure and popularity there were an average 9 0 000 reported sightings per annum in the USSR, and consequently discussed on television. It is as a consequence of this openness towards this subject, that in October 2007 the Russians most likely blew the lid off this dungeon of secrecy so closely guarded by NASA.

    There seems to be some weird agenda and a completely different mindset in the West regarding the existence or proof of other advanced beings in the universe. Many government agencies in the West have done all they can to suppress such information to the best of their ability. Why? The answer is more complex than we would ever imagine.

    By the 29th October 2007 astronomers have discovered 251 new planets, most of which were discovered between 2005 and 2007. This means that if this rate persists, these planetary discoveries will grow exponentially to several million new planets in the next decade. So, with the help of science and astronomy, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to argue the idea that we are all alone in this universe.

    The past two decades have seen a number of US and Russian astronauts confess to seeing UFOs and even ETs while in space or on the surface of the moon. While this kind of information should be making headline news, as it holds serious implications for our safety as a species on a planet called Earth, it has been relegated to the “fine print” of global news. Again we need to ask, why?

    Gordon Cooper was one of USA’s first astronauts. One of the original seven Mercury astronauts, Cooper orbited the Earth for a record 34 hours, which took him on 22 orbits in the spacecraft Faith 7, in May 1963.

    In his post-NASA career, Cooper became known as an outspoken believer in UFOs and repeatedly claimed that the US government was covering up its knowledge of extraterrestrial activity. In 1985 Gordon Cooper delivered a message to the UN in New York, during a discussion on UFOs and ETs. The speech was based on his own personal experience of UFO sightings in space and the additional testimony of other Mercury, Gemini and Apollo astronauts. The panel was chaired by then UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim. Cooper died on the 4th October 2004 at age 77.

    “I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets, which are a little more technically advanced than we are on Earth. I feel that we need to have a top level, coordinated program to scientifically collect and analyze data from all over the Earth concerning any type of encounter, and to determine how best to interfere with these visitors in a friendly fashion.

    We may first have to show them that we have learned how to resolve our problems by peaceful means rather than warfare, before we are accepted as fully qualified universal team members. Their acceptance will have tremendous possibilities of advancing our world in all areas. Certainly then it would seem that the UN has a vested interest in handling the subject quickly and properly.

    I should point out that I am not an experienced UFO professional researcher – I have not as yet had the privilege of flying a UFO nor of meeting the crew of one. However, I do feel that I am somewhat qualified to discuss them, since I have been into the fringes of the vast areas of which they travel. Also, I did have occasion in 1951 to have two days of observation of many flights of them, of different sizes flying in fighter formation, generally from west to east over Europe. They were at a higher altitude than we could reach with our jet fighters….

    If the U.N. agrees to pursue this project and lend the credibility to it, perhaps many more well qualified people will agree to step forth and provide help and information.”

    This kind of evidence simply highlights the probability that there is a huge cover up to keep such information from the mainstream population. Whatever the reasons for the cover-ups by global powers, which includes the mainstream media, raises some profound questions.
    And while NASA has always claimed that the findings of lunar and space expeditions have never been held secret, it is curious to note that Dr. Farouk El Baz, one of NASA’s foremost scientists admitted, “not every discovery has been announced”.

    Nearly all the astronauts were military officers who were governed by an extremely strict code of conduct which included being silenced under orders. As time erodes their loyalties and their conscience caught up, along with the inevitable ageing process, these space cowboys started spilling the beans.

    Apollo 14 astronaut E. MITCHELL had this to say:
    “I’m convinced there’s life throughout the universe. It’s just a question of how developed. Are they a few thousand years ahead of us? It doesn’t take much.”

    The Canadian reports that according to transcripts of the technical debriefing following the Apollo 11 mission, astronauts Armstrong, Collins, and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin told of their encounter with a large cylindrical UFO, even before reaching the moon. Aldrin officially presented his encounters with extraterrestrials on CNN’s Larry King Live.
    “The first unusual thing that we saw I guess was one day out or pretty close to the moon. It had a sizable dimension to it”. He further said the Apollo crew first thought the object was the Saturn 4 booster rocket (S-IVB) but he added, “We called the ground and were told the S-IVB was 6 000 miles away.”

    Aldrin described the UFO as a cylinder, while Armstrong said it was “really two rings… two connected rings”. Collins added, “It was a hollow cylinder. But then you could change the focus on the sextant and it would be replaced by this open-book shape. It was really weird.”

    But even stranger was the experience of Aldrin and Armstrong after they reached the moon. According a story on the 20th July 1969 published in the San Bernardino Sun-Telegram, the astronauts saw eerie lights inside a crater near the point where their lunar module was due to touch down the next day.

    Armstrong described a mysterious bright light on the inner wall of crater Aristarchus, located north of their flight path on their first sweep around the moon. “It seems to have a slight amount of florescence to it. The area in the crater is quite bright” he remarked. Aldrin confirmed his description, “That area is definitely brighter than anything else I can see. There doesn’t appear to be any colour involved in it. It looks like an eerie sight.”

    On The Oprah Winfrey Show on the 19th July 1991, Mitchell hinted that all information regarding UFOs has not been released. “I do believe that there is a lot more known about extraterrestrial investigation than is available to the public right now…and has been for a long time… it’s a long, long story. It goes back to World War II when all of that happened, and is highly classified stuff.”

    In 1978 Gordon Cooper wrote a letter to the ambassador of the Mission of Grenada to the United Nations supporting a UN initiative to study UFOs. Cooper stated that astronauts “are very reluctant even to discuss UFOs due to the great numbers of people who have indiscriminately sold fake stories and forged documents, abusing their names and reputations without hesitation. Those few astronauts who have continued to participate in the UFO field have had to do so very cautiously. There are several of us who do believe in UFOs and who have had occasion to see a UFO on the ground, or from an airplane.”

    Cooper had an encounter with a UFO on the ground at Edwards Air Force Base on May 2, 1957. Cooper gave this account of the incident in 1993: “I had a crew that was filming an installation of a precision landing system we were installing out on the dry lake bed, and they were there with stills and movies, and filmed the whole installation and they came running in to tell me that this UFO, a little saucer, had come down right over them, put down three gear, and landed about 50 yards from them, and as they proceeded to go on over to get a closer shot of it, it lifted up, put the gear in, and disappeared in a rapid rate of speed.”

    “And so I had to follow my directions as a military (officer?)… I had to look up the regulations on who I was to call to report this, which I did, and they ordered me to immediately have the film developed, put it in a pouch, and send them by the commanding general’s plane to Washington, which I did. And that was the last I’ve ever heard of the film.”

    No public report regarding this incident has ever been lodged, and although the event was listed in the Project Blue Book index, a full report and clear photos are suspiciously absent.
    In a 1996 interview Cooper dismissed all conventional explanations for his experience and this is what he had to say. “Well, I figured it was somebody coming from some distant place to visit us.”

    One of the most compelling pieces of evidence was presented by Christopher Kraft, who was Director of the NASA tracking base in Houston during the Apollo moon missions when he revealed the following conversation, but only after he left his employ at NASA. Kraft stated that there was 1.) a public… and 2.) a secret private A.S.A. radio frequency between the moon and Mission Control and that the conversation below took place during a mysterious two minute interruption in public transmissions.
    Once again the unexpected hand of technology intervened as proof of this conversation, when hundreds of independent civilian radio-ham operators with powerful VHF equipment reported hearing the transmission from the Apollo 11 crew, independently from each other thousands of miles apart on Earth. It is further reported that Soviet radio operators also picked up the conversation and published it in Moscow shortly after the event.

    ASTRONAUTS NEIL ARMSTRONG and BUZZ ALDRIN speaking from the Moon:
    “Those are giant things. No, no, no … this is not an optical illusion. No one is going to believe this!”

    MISSION CONTROL (HOUSTON): “What…what…what? What the hell is happening? What’s wrong with you?”

    ASTRONAUTS: “They’re here under the surface.”

    MISSION CONTROL: “What’s there? Emission interrupted… interference control calling Apollo II.”

    ASTRONAUTS: “We saw some visitors. They were there for awhile, observing the instruments.”

    MISSION CONTROL: “Repeat your last information.”

    ASTRONAUTS: “I say that there were other spaceships. They’re lined up on the other side of the crater.”

    MISSION CONTROL: “Repeat…repeat!”

    ASTRONAUTS: “Let us sound this orbita ….. In 625 to 5… automatic relay connected… My hands are shaking so badly I can’t do anything. Film it? God, if these damned cameras have picked up anything… what then?”

    MISSION CONTROL: “Have you picked up anything?”

    ASTRONAUTS: “I didn’t have any film at hand. Three shots of the saucers or whatever they were that were ruining the film.”

    MISSION CONTROL: “Control, control here. Are you on your way? Is the uproar with the UFOs over?

    ASTRONAUTS: “They’ve landed there. There they are and they are watching us.”

    MISSION CONTROL: “The mirrors, the mirrors…have you set them up?”

    ASTRONAUTS: “Yes, they’re in the right place. But whoever made those space ships surely can come tomorrow and remove them. Over and out.”

    There is an unconfirmed report documented by Steve Omar, that when Buzz Aldrin opened the door after landing on the moon, he immediately saw a transparent ethereal being staring at him from outside. Another mysterious radio message from the moon was broadcast on French public television only once, after which it was censored. That transmission appeared to be a mysterious, but clearly spoken alien language.

    Famous French historian and author Robbert Charroux published the transmission which has been covered-up and suppressed in the US. It originated from US astronaut Worden who transmitted it to NASA, but expert linguists have been unable to translate the message since. Or have they?

    The Moon is truly a mysterious satellite trapped in Earth’s orbit. Scientists are still at odds about the origins of this heavenly body. Virtually every aspect of the moon is very curious indeed and forces us to examine it in greater detail and with more of an open mind than ever before – when we consider writings by ancient civilisations of planet Earth before it had a moon!

    My next article will look at more transmitted conversations between astronauts on various Apollo missions; some Moon Facts; and Russian views on all of this. In the meantime here is a fascinating website to explore.

    The mystery of the moon keeps growing

    Part 2 of 3

    After months of research and digging up information about our mysterious satellite the moon, I am once again reminded how important it is to keep an open mind at all times. Just when I thought I had a pretty good idea about the moon, its history and its relation to Earth, my research and the relentless work of many other nosey scientists dishes up a real feast of information to consume in small, digestible bite-size chunks.

    The first chairman of NASA’s Lunar Exploration Committee, Robert Jastrow, said that “the moon is the Rosetta stone of the planets.” Let’s hope it allows us to decipher as much of our human history as the Rosetta stone did for Egyptology. And so far, it certainly seem that it can.

    I urge you to set aside all you ever thought you knew about this planetary satellite and allow yourself to imagine the most bizarre set of possibilities. As I scratch for historic and new information about the moon, I keep discovering such incredible new material that it forces me to reconsider all I thought I knew. There is certainly a lot more to the moon than meets the eye on the first, second and third inspection. So before we carry on with the story of the Astronauts and their experiences on the moon here are some fascinating facts about the moon – just to shake things up a little.

    This information was compiled by Ronald Regehr; a researcher and scientist in the defence industry and NASA. His main attribute seems to be that he is an out-of-the-box thinker. I extracted and edited some of the more juicy bits of info to tickle your fancy.

    1. Moon’s Age:
    Is much older than previously expected and maybe even older than the Earth or even the Sun. Earth’s age is estimated to be 4.6 billion years old at the most by some scientists – while various moon rocks were dated at 5.3 billion years old. What’s more puzzling is that the dust upon which they were resting was at least another billion years older.
    2. Rock’s Origin:
    The chemical composition of the dust below the rocks differs remarkably from the rocks themselves. This excludes the possibility that the dust resulted from the weathering rocks themselves. Where did the rocks come from? Somewhere else?
    3. Heavier Elements on Surface:
    On Earth and the composition of other planets, the heavier elements are normally found in the core while the lighter materials are concentrated at the surface. But not so with the moon. The abundance of refractory elements like titanium in the surface areas is so pronounced, that several geologists proposed that the refractory compounds must have been brought to the moon’s surface in great quantity in some unknown way. They are adamant. They don’t know how, but there is no other way for this to have happened!
    4. Water Vapour:
    On the 7th March 1971, lunar instruments that were positioned on the moon by the astronauts recorded a cloud of water vapour passing across the surface of the moon. The cloud covered an area of about 100 square miles and lasted 14 hours.
    5. Magnetic Rocks:
    Moon rocks are magnetised. This is very strange because there is no magnetic field on the moon itself. And it could not have originated from a “lose call” with Earth because such an encounter would have ripped the moon apart.
    6. No Volcanoes:
    Some of the moon’s craters originated internally, yet there is no indication that the moon was ever hot enough to produce volcanic eruptions.
    7. Moon Mascons:
    Mascons are large, dense, circular masses, lying twenty to forty miles beneath the centres of each of the moon’s large maria (dried crater-like ocean beds). Some scientists suggest that these are broad, disk-shaped objects, that could even be some kind of artificial constructions. Huge circular disks would not appear perfectly centred beneath each huge mare by coincidence or accident, they claim.
    8. Seismic Activity:
    Hundreds of “moonquakes” are recorded each year that cannot be attributed to meteor strikes. In November 1958, Soviet astronomer Nikolay A. Kozyrev of the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory photographed a gaseous eruption of the moon near the crater Alphonsus. He also detected a reddish glow that lasted for about an hour. In 1963, astronomers at the Lowell Observatory also saw reddish glows on the crests of ridges in the Aristarchus region.
    What is really fascinating about these events, is that they were observed to be identical in their activity and they occur precisely and periodically, repeating themselves as the moon moves closer to Earth. These are probably not natural phenomena.
    9. Hollow Moon:
    The moon’s mean density is 3.34 gm/cm3 (3.34 times an equal volume of water) whereas the Earth’s mean density is 5.5. What does this mean? In 1962, NASA scientist Dr. Gordon MacDonald stated, “If the astronomical data are reduced, it is found that the data require that the interior of the moon is more like a hollow than a homogeneous sphere.”
    Nobel chemist Dr. Harold Urey suggested the moon’s reduced density is because of large areas inside the moon where is “simply a cavity.”
    MIT’s Dr. Sean C. Solomon wrote, “the Lunar Orbiter experiments vastly improved our knowledge of the moon’s gravitational field… indicating the frightening possibility that the moon might be hollow.”
    In Carl Sagan’s work Intelligent Life in the Universe, the famous astronomer stated, “A natural satellite cannot be a hollow object.”
    10. Moon Echoes:
    On the 20th November 1969, the crew of Apollo 12 jettisoned the lunar module ascent stage causing it to crash onto the moon some 40 miles from the Apollo 12 landing site. This created an artificial moonquake with startling characteristics. The moon reverberated like a bell for more than an hour. This phenomenon was intentionally repeated with Apollo 13, when they allowed the third stage to impact the moon. The results were even more startling. Seismic instruments recorded that the reverberations lasted for three hours and twenty minutes and travelled to a depth of twenty-five miles. This lead to the conclusion that the moon has an unusually light, or even no core.
    11. Unusual Metals:
    The moon’s crust is much harder than presumed. The astronauts encountered extreme difficulty when they tried to drill into the maria. The maria is composed primarily ilmenite, which is a mineral containing large amounts of titanium, the same metal used to fabricate the hulls of deep-diving submarines and the skin of the SR-71 “Blackbird”. What is even more puzzling, was the discovery of Uranium 236 and Neptunium 237 in lunar rocks (elements not found in nature on Earth). And a further surprise was finding rustproof iron particles. What?
    12. Moon’s Origin:
    Before the moon rocks conclusively disproved all the common theories about the moon’s origins, these were some of the theories.
    The moon was believed to have originated when a chunk of Earth broke off eons ago (who knows from where, if the materials are not the same?).
    Another theory was that the moon was created from leftover “space dust” remaining after the Earth was created. Analysis of the composition of moon rocks disproved this theory also.
    Another popular theory is that the moon was somehow “captured” by the Earth’s gravitational attraction. But no scientific evidence exists to support this theory. Isaac Asimov stated, “It’s too big to have been captured by the Earth. The chances of such a capture having been effected and the moon then having taken up a nearly circular orbit around our Earth, are too small to make such an eventuality credible.”
    13. Weird Orbit:
    Our moon does not rotate on its axis. We only ever see one side of the moon. There is what is known as the “dark side of the moon” that we have never seen from Earth. It is the only moon in the solar system that has a stationary, near-perfect circular orbit. Stranger still, the moon’s centre of mass is about 6000 feet closer to the Earth than its geometric centre (which should cause wobbling), but the moon’s bulge is on the far side of the moon, away from the Earth. “Something or someone” had to put the moon in orbit with its precise altitude, course, and speed.
    14. Moon Diameter:
    How does one explain the “coincidence” that the moon is just the right distance, coupled with just the right diameter, to completely cover the sun during an eclipse? Again, Isaac Asimov responds, “There is no astronomical reason why the moon and the sun should fit so well. It is the sheerest of coincidences, and only the Earth among all the planets is blessed in this fashion.”
    15. Spaceship Moon Theory:
    As outrageous as it may sound, it is quite possible that the moon is a giant, intelligently designed spaceship, with a specific purpose. The facts lead us convincingly to such an insane conclusion. The only theory that is supported by all of the data, is that the moon is a gigantic extraterrestrial craft, brought here eons ago by intelligent beings, and there is no data that seems to contradict this theory.
    (Thank you Ronald Regehr)

    Next article we will explore more events on the moon and the possible interaction of US astronauts and aliens. This is what the Russians have claimed drove the Americans off the moon.

  25. Hi.
    My previous two posts were e-mails sent to me by author, Michael Tellinger. It’s rather interesting, I suggest you take a look on his site!

  26. that was a long story there. that was interesting.how did you get his email and what is his website.

  27. Hi Natalie
    Just Google Michael Tellinger.
    The guy is an ass, but he is an informative ass…

  28. Yes the moon is real

  29. Your right!

  30. you guys are almost all retards! the moon looks bigger because it is loser to the horizon. It rotates and orbits at the same rate, so it always points the same side towards us. It is the only moon in our solar system to do this

  31. nevermind you are ALL retards. an INTELLIGENT MOON? The moon cooled, then collided with earth. the earth was molten,and cast a layer of rock?

  32. all conspiracies and urban legends are the same way. RETARDS!

  33. Easy, vode an. Take a deep breath. Did you click on any of the links? Click on some of the images, read about crime rates, birth rates, etc. You might like it.


  35. balls

  36. just understand how the colours from sun and universe affect us today..
    what should be the reason why the moons always shows one side? how can it be prooved?

  37. at night the moon is on one side of the earth while the sun is on the other. therefore the suns light reflects off the moon each night and as the moon move around the earth in the lunar cycle the sun reflects more or less light on it. we only see one side

  38. gratefully ALLAH


  40. All of you are dumbasses. The moon is the moon. Nothing else. Religon has NOTHING to do with it. F.Y.I. God and Allah are not real! I am deticated to science, and religion is fictional beliefs. Nothing can persuay me.

  41. The Moon is Earth’s only natural satellite and is the fifth largest satellite in the Solar System. It is the largest natural satellite in the Solar System relative to the size of its planet, a quarter the diameter of Earth and 1/81 its mass, and is the second densest satellite after Io. It is in synchronous rotation with Earth, always showing the same face; the near side is marked with dark volcanic maria among the bright ancient crustal highlands and prominent impact craters. Despite being the brightest object in the sky after the Sun, its surface is actually very dark, with a similar reflectance to coal. Its prominence in the sky and its regular cycle of phases have since ancient times made the Moon an important cultural influence on language, the calendar, art and mythology. The Moon’s gravitational influence produces the ocean tides and the minute lengthening of the day. The Moon’s current orbital distance, about thirty times the diameter of the Earth, causes it to be the same size in the sky as the Sun – allowing the Moon to cover the Sun precisely in total solar eclipses.

    The Moon is the only celestial body on which humans have made a manned landing. While the Soviet Union’s Luna programme was the first to reach the Moon with unmanned spacecraft, the United States’ NASA Apollo program achieved the only manned missions to date, beginning with the first manned lunar orbiting mission by Apollo 8 in 1968, and six manned lunar landings between 1969 and 1972 – the first being Apollo 11 in 1969. These missions returned over 380 kg of lunar rocks, which have been used to develop a detailed geological understanding of the Moon’s origins (it is thought to have formed some 4.5 billion years ago in a giant impact), the formation of its internal structure, and its subsequent history.

    Since the Apollo 17 mission in 1972, the Moon has been visited only by unmanned spacecraft, notably by Soviet Lunokhod rovers. Since 2004, Japan, China, India, the United States, and the European Space Agency have each sent lunar orbiters. These spacecraft have confirmed the discovery of lunar water ice in permanently shadowed craters at the poles and bound into the lunar regolith. Future manned missions to the Moon are planned but not yet underway; the Moon remains, under the Outer Space Treaty, free to all nations to explore for peaceful purposes.

  42. I am one of the ones in favor of another space mission to the moon, as we are in need of more footprints up there. At least, I want to go up there and help the crew (who is yet to be decided) if we ever do a moon landing in the near future.

  43. You’re all dumb

  44. …especially NASA Scientist, because you’re not

  45. what is my dreams go far on the people and stay far on trouble and live on the moon like this i don’t see any body

  46. there is something weird about the moon. It has always fascinated us in so many ways. Many things are better left unexplained.

  47. so amazing all god’s creation

  48. talking about the moon isn’t interesting so why do you do it? because you have nothing better to do than post stupid comments on here that noone really cares about. If you look at the moon every night for a year you will always see the same side of the moon. So There.

  49. My brother recommended I would possibly like this website. He used to be entirely right. This submit actually made my day. You cann’t consider just how so much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!
