LUENEBURG, GERMANY - APRIL 07: The supermoon is seen in the night sky on April 07, 2020 in Lueneburg, Germany. The supermoon is visible as the full moon coincides with the satellite in its closest approach to Earth, which makes it appear brighter and larger than other full moons.

I don’t know if you’re like me but I am a little skeptical that we landed on the moon when we claimed we did. I question everything . Now I do believe we have been there since then but I have a hard time grasping the original landing.

Well, now NASA has a big announcement about the moon. Turns out, the moon could contain more water than was originally thought.

A NASA official said today that part of the surface of the moon has water. That’s the first time water has been known to be on the sunlit part. Very small ice patches could also contain water. NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter helped gather research on the topic over the last eleven years.

But don’t get any aspirations about a beach day on the moon anytime soon. The never-ending darkness sees temperatures drop to minus 300-degrees Fahrenheit. That means any water deposited there, by comets or asteroids, is trapped, turning to ice that doesn’t ever see the sun again.
