Fun Facts About the Moon

 Lunar Interesting Information 

Fun Facts about the Moon.  Humans have been obsessed with the Moon since the dawning of civilisation.   When we look up into the night sky, it conjures up deep thoughts of our place in the universe.   In our recent history we now have a fuller knowledge to understand this celestial being. 

The Moon Landings

 1969-1974 served to expand this information and knowledge.  By 1974 the US Government felt that they could not justify the cost to continue to visit the Moon.  Humans have not returned since.  However in 2024 the Americans are planning to go back to the Moon.  In celebration of this we wanted to share this #Blog with you with you.
