Expert Observations About Our Moon

Always fascinated by the Moon—perhaps because being a Baby Boomer, tales from my Chickasaw-Choctaw great grandmother Margaret Ralph-Morgan and being around during the early days of manned American space exploration–were influences.

We never took the Moon for granted. Not much in my experiences matched the 1969 landing on the lunar surface by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Meeting and interviewing Aldrin was definitely a highlight years later.

Here is a collection of interesting quotes from scientists, authors, researchers, NASA insiders and star-gazers relating to the enigmatic and often inexplicable nature of the moon:

Isaac Asimov,
American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University and Science Fiction writer. Asimov was one of the most prolific writers of all time.

“We cannot help but come to the conclusion that the Moon by rights ought not to be there. The fact that it is, is one of the strokes of luck almost too good to accept… Small planets, such as Earth, with weak gravitational fields, might well lack satellites… … In general then, when a planet does have satellites, those satellites are much smaller than the planet itself. Therefore, even if the Earth has a satellite, there would be every reason to suspect… that at best it would be a tiny world, perhaps 30 miles in diameter. But that is not so. Earth not only has a satellite, but it is a giant satellite, 2160 miles in diameter. How is it then, that tiny Earth has one? Amazing.”

“The Moon, which has no atmosphere and no magnetic field, is basically a freak of nature”

Irwin Shapiro,
Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

“The best possible explanation for the Moon is observational error – the Moon doesn’t exist.’

“The Moon is bigger than it should be, apparently older than it should be and much lighter in mass than it should be. It occupies an unlikely orbit and is so extraordinary that all existing explanations for its presence are fraught with difficulties are none of them could be considered remotely watertight.”

Christopher Knight and Alan Bulter
Book: Who Built the Moon?

The Moon has astonishing synchronicity with the Sun. When the Sun is at its lowest and weakest in mid-winter, the Moon is at its highest and brightest, and the reverse occurs in mid-summer. Both set at the same point on the horizon at the equinoxes and at the opposite point at the solstices. What are the chances that the Moon would naturally find an orbit so perfect that it would cover the Sun at an eclipse and appear from Earth to be the same size? What are chances that the alignments would be so perfect at the equinoxes and solstices?

Farouk El Baz,
NASA

“If water vapour is coming from the Moon’s interior is this serious. It means that there is a drastic distinction between the different phases of the lunar interior – that the interior is quite different from what we have seen on the surface.”

Mikhail Vasin, Alexander Shcherbakov,
Societ Academy of Sciences, 1970.

“Is the moon a creation of an alien intelligence?”

Dr Harold Urey,
Nobel Prize for Chemistry

“I’m terribly puzzled by the rocks from the Moon and in particular of their titanium content.”

Dr S Ross Taylor,
Geochemist of lunar chemical analysis,

Said the problem was that maria plains the size of Texas had to be covered with melted rock containing fluid titanium. He said you would not expect titanium ever to be hot enough to do that, even on Earth, and no one has ever suggested that the Moon was hotter than the Earth.

“What could distribute titanium in this way? Highly advanced technology developed and operated by entities that are immensely more technologically advance than humans.”

Dr. Gordon MacDonald,
NASA

“it would seem that the Moon is more like a hollow than a homogenous sphere’. He surmised that the data must have been wrong – but it wasn’t.”

Carl Sagan,
Cosmologist,

“A natural satellite cannot be a hollow object.”

Dr. Sean C Solomon,
Massachusetts Institute of Technology

“The Lunar Orbiter experiments had vastly improved knowledge of the Moon’s gravitational field and indicated the frightening possibility that the Moon might be hollow.”

University of Arizona Lon Hood
“We knew that the Moon’s core was small, but we didn’t know it was this small… This really does add weight to the idea that the Moon’s origin is unique, unlike any other terrestrial body.”

NASA scientists
The Apollo 12 mission to the Moon in November 1969 set up seismometers and then intentionally crashed the Lunar Module causing an impact equivalent to one ton of TNT. The shockwaves built up for eight minutes, and NASA scientists said the Moon ‘rang like a bell.

Maurice Ewing,
American geophysicist and oceanographer

“As for the meaning of it, I’d rather not make an interpretation right now, but it is as though someone had struck a bell, say, in the belfry of a church, a single blow and found that the reverberation from it continued for 30 minutes.”

Ken Johnson,
Supervisor of the Data and Photo Control department during the Apollo missions

“The Moon not only rang like a bell, but the whole Moon wobbled in such a precise way that it was almost as though it had gigantic hydraulic damper struts inside it.”

Moon rocks have been found to contain processed metals, including brass and mica, and the elements Uranium 236 and Neptunium 237 that have never been found to occur naturally.

Dr. D L Anderson,
Professor of geophysics and director of the seismological laboratory,
California Institute of Technology


“The Moon is made inside out and that its inner and outer compositions should be the other way around.”

Dr. Robin Brett,
NASA Scientist

“It seems much easier to explain the nonexistence of the moon than its existence.”

  1. ABBA is the best cook ever. HE knew what was needed to sustain HIS planet Earth, with the moon and all the other planets to destroy and repel celestial bodies from hitting HIS planet Earth so that we may live.. GODSPEED ladyhawk

    1. Amen to that! The scientists and ‘educated’ folks are giving credit to everyone BUT the Creator and Sustainer of everything. How else can anyone explain our custom-made Earth and Moon? 🌎🌕

  2. The Moon would fit across the United States (the contiguous states). It has an Apparent Diameter equal to the sun’s apparent diameter. The moon is close, and relatively small, and the sun could hold well over 1,000,000 earths. Apparent Diameter can be demonstrated by, for example, by holding something at arms length, so that my phone takes up the same width as my TV, slightly less height, and my tablet at arms length is bigger than the TV. Watching a program on my Tablet held at Arms Length is actually bigger than watching a 32″ Diagonal TV across the room. Because the Sun and Moon have the Same Apparent Diameter, Solar and Lunar Eclipses are possible. I photographed the Lunar Eclipse last night, using my Cell Phone, a Platform that Attaches the Cellphone to Binoculars, and with it held very steady against a solid object, I zoomed in the Cellphone Image as well.

    The Moon turns on it’s Axis, but is in a Captured (or Synchronous) Rotation. We always see the same side, but:

    “The moon orbits the Earth once every 27.322 days. It also takes approximately 27 days for the moon to rotate once on its axis. As a result, the moon does not seem to be spinning but appears to observers from Earth to be keeping almost perfectly still. Scientists call this synchronous rotation.”

    59% of the Moons Surface can be seen from the earth, though at any given moment, only 50% is visible. The Moon, and other Planets and Moons, including the earth, have Librations (Wobbles), and that permits, at certain times, to see a little more along one edge, or the other, or poles as well, so in the long term, a careful observer, can see 59% all told.

    The Moon does not Orbit the Earth. I know, it’s a shocker. It’s more like they orbit around a mutual reference point that is within the earth’s crust, but not at the center of the earth. Barycenter is the name for that point, and if the Moon had a similar density to the earth, things would be changed, but the article I just saw says the lack of density of the moon changes things considerably.

    “You might guess that the mass of the moon would be (1/4) of the mass of the earth, if the densities were the same, but in fact the moon is only about 60% as dense, ……the center-of-mass is below the surface of the earth. However, it’s not much below; it is considerably closer to the surface than it is to the center…..”

    Far too many coincidences in the moon, the Size, the Captured Rotation, and issues listed in your article, the lack of density, the ringing after the impact test, and more.
