Explosions On The Moon

These bursts have occurred hundreds of times during that span. Meteoroids hitting the moon cause them. One blast is equivalent to hundreds of pounds of TNT, and the explosions can be photographed from a typical backyard telescope.

  1. That’s so scary if it will ever hit Earth. I’m pretty interested in Space stuff and this is very interesting. I have never heard about this in past years.

  2. This a very interesting topic because if those meteroids can hit the moon then cant they travel to the earth to? Well any way i guess what happens happens. Its not like we can stop it we dont have any intergallactic space rockets that can shoot them down.
