A Lunar Mystery

Have you noticed that in the “Radiance” image of the moonscape (one of the desktop backgrounds available in Windows), along with the myriad pockmarks of various-sized meteor craters is the partial rim of what appears to be a vast, circular lunar mountain ridge? You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to realize that must have been formed by some ancient mega-meteor, and that a wallop from a meteor that size could have knocked the moon out of . . . or into . . . its present orbit. Obviously the latter—unless, surprisingly, the great blow in fact did not alter the moon’s trajectory.

One of God’s many, mighty mysteries.
