Mysterious flashes of light observed on the moon’s surface

author Jasper Hamill Friday 31 May 2019 5:41 pm

Scientists have launched a bid to observe and understand mysterious flashes of light on the surface of the moon.

The ‘transient luminous lunar phenomena’ occur several times a week and illuminate parts of the moon’s landscape for a brief period of time before disappearing.

Sometimes, a reverse effect which causes the lunar surface to darken has also been observed.

Although there are several theories about the lunar mystery lights’ origins, they have not yet been fully explained.

Now astronomers from Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) in Bavaria, Germany have set up a telescope which will use artificial intelligence to automatically detect the flashes.

When a burst of light is spotted, the telescope will then collect video or photographs of the phenomena which will be studied to help scientists understand the flashes.

HuMmmmm :?:



Mysterious large mass discovered on Moon bewilders scientists: 'Whatever it is, wherever it came from'

A new study suggests that a ‘large body’ crashed into the Moon and gave it its distinctive features

A new study suggests that a ‘large body,’ perhaps an ancient planet or asteroid, crashed into the Moon and gave it its distinctive features.

A large mass of unknown material has been discovered on the largest crater on the Moon and scientists aren't sure what it is.

According to an April 2019 study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, the researchers believe the mass could contain metal from an asteroid that crashed into the celestial satellite, which resulted in the aforementioned crater, known as the Lunar South Pole-Aitken basin.

"Imagine taking a pile of metal five times larger than the Big Island of Hawaii and burying it underground. That's roughly how much unexpected mass we detected," lead author Dr. Peter James, assistant professor of planetary geophysics at Baylor University, said in a statement.

At roughly 1,550 miles in diameter, the Lunar South Pole-Aitken basin stretches across approximately one-fourth of the Moon, according to NASA. The Moon's circumference is roughly 11,000 kilometers.

It does seem like the turds in the punchbowl are stinkier than ever doesn't it? Nothing good going on in their sad lives, they live to make other folks' lives as sh!tty as theirs. But it only works if they get the attention they want. Ignore 'em!

No worries Dude, Fan's still The Man at the FF. He stays in the background mostly but he always answers the call if the forum's acting hinky.

The FF is a nice site thanks to Fan & all the folk who come here & play nice. The ones who won't or don't can still come here but shouldn't expect to play with anyone but themselves.

Well, there IS a pandemic going on. A lotta stuff's not accessible the way it'd be normally.

How about doing more of the stuff you like that you can still do?? Or start a new hobby?
