Curious Facts about the Moon
Check out our other Moon Willow Lake Hubs:
Since we are Moon Willow Lake, it is only fitting we bring you some information about the moon. So, with that in mind, we bring you.......
Before electricity, people traveled by night during full moons. We have associated the moon with everything from romance to horror movies. Law enforcement and health care people report an increase in aggressive activity during full moons. It influences the oceans’ tides. And when a full moon reflects the sun’s light, there is nothing brighter in the sky except for the sun.
But how much do we really know about the moon? Here are some curious facts:
- By dating rocks, the moon appears to be much older than the earth.
- Water vapor has been recorded on the moon.
- The moon’s density is far lower than expected raising the possibility it is hollow.
- When something heavy strikes the moon it reverberates as though it is hollow.
- The moon’s crust contains a high level of titanium, a favorite metal for high stress applications such as aircraft and submarines.
- We have the only moon in the solar system known to have a nearly circular orbit.
- It is just the right size and distance from us to produce a full solar eclipse.
- Ancient legends say the earth was here before the moon arrived.
- Unexplained lights have appeared on the moon for centuries.
A federal law
Another curious fact is this: There is a law that has come to be known as the ET Exposure Law. The following quote is taken from an article about this law. “On October 5, 1982, Dr. Brain T. Clifford of the Pentagon announced at a press conference ('The Star', New York, Oct. 5, 1982) that contact between U.S. citizens and extra-terrestrials or their vehicles is strictly illegal.” Why does that law exist? And why make such an announcement at a public news conference? Though it wasn't announced until 1982, it was enacted in 1969. That is also the same year the Apollo astronauts first went to the moon. Does that mean someone already have something to be concerned about?
More to the story
All of the above begs the question is there more to the moon than
meets the eye or is there some “reasonable” explanation for all the
oddities? After all, no one has come up with anything really substantial
to prove anything unusual about the moon, have they? Yes, they have.
Check out the book Who Built the Moon? to the right where you can learn more.
My own interpretation
Should the possibility of the moon being an artificial satellite be any less likely
than a natural satellite? After all, there are people seriously talking
about terraforming Mars.
So if we can do that, no matter how distant, or near, that might be in
our futures, why is it so impossible to believe that someone else has done similar things with the moon?
Are you as curious as I am?
Do you know of any reputable scientists who would say, “Yes or no, the moon is, or is not an artificial satellite? Here is the evidence I found to prove or disprove it.” I would ask that you request permission to put that response here or ask that scientist to do so.
And what are your thoughts? We would like to know. Do you consider the moon’s mysteries every time you see it as we do? Or do such thoughts only occur once in a blue moon?
