Yes. Many billions of years ago, a large celestial body, bigger than Mars struck the young Earth at an angle and vaporized a large portion of both. After a time, the leftover pieces formed into moonlets and then the moonlets into the final moon that we see today.
It has been suggested that a planet called Nibiru, which orbits the Sun in the opposite direction to the other planets and takes several thousand years to complete it orbit, hit a planet. The result is the Earth and the Moon. On a previous orbit it is supposed to have struck a different planet and the result of that is the Asteroid ring. I do not know if this is true but the ancient Sumarians wrote of this and said they had been visited by the inhabitants of Nibiru, the Annunaki. This is why some fear a return of Nibiru and wonder if this is what the Maya anticipate in their calender. Hope this is of help.
At one time the earth and the moon were one body, much softer than either is now-being much hotter-and spinning much faster. The rate at which it spun made it fly into two parts. The smaller became the moon, and the larger the earth.

Is planet Nibiru set to directly collide with Earth in 2012, if not then why are all images of...its location blurred out on Google Earth sky?

by Richard J ONeill 6 years ago
Do you think planet x or Nibiru is really going to smash into Earth?It is said to have a massive eliptical orbit which passes earth every 3600 years. Will it pass us and clip us this year? 2003 was supposed to be the year but it never came.
