The Most Interesting Facts About the Moons in our Solar System

October 27, 2014 | 1

Moons — also called satellites — come in many shapes, sizes and types. They are generally solid bodies, and few have atmospheres.

NASA Mission Finds Evidence of Volcanic Eruptions on Moon in Recent Times

October 13, 2014 | 1

Astronomers are moonstruck! The man in the moon, we learned just last week, formed from dark flowing lava over three billion years ago, instead of a long supposed giant asteroid impact. Now, we learn that same volcanism may have kept on erupting until surprisingly recent times. Read More

Super Moon Photos from Around the World, July 2014

July 15, 2014 |

You may have noticed the moon looked bigger and brighter than usual this weekend. When the moon is full while its orbit is closest to Earth it’s known as a “supermoon,” creating an illusion of a dramatically large luminous sphere when viewed close to the horizon. This is what occurred over the weekend when the moon was at its fullest and still appeared brighter than normal. Read More

Early Earth may Once have had Two Moons, Astronomers Say

July 9, 2014 | 4

Earth may have once looked a little more like Mars: a planet with two moons. It’s not the first time the theory has been trotted out by Erik Asphaug, but it’s getting new life thanks to an upcoming conference about our natural satellite. Asphaug says the second moon would have been much tinier—about 1/30th the size of our moon. But after orbiting Earth for a few million years, it would have had quite the impact, literally, on its larger twin. Read More

Earth and Moon are much Older Than We Thought

June 16, 2014 |

The oldest rocks ever discovered in our solar system have been dated back about 4.57 billion years, meaning Earth obviously finished forming later than that. However, determining exactly when that happened can be difficult. New research presented by French geochemists from the University of Lorraine has revealed xenon isotopes. These isotopes indicate that the Earth and Moon are 60 million years older than was previously believed. Read More
