Rare hole in the moon photographed

Postby DarkUFO on Tue Jun 29, 2010 12:30 pm

New photographs of the moon have revealed a rare hole the size of a football field on the lunar surface.

New photos of the moon have revealed the most detailed views yet of a rare hole in the lunar surface — a pit large enough to swallow an entire football field whole.

The boulders and debris resting on the floor of the cavity are partially illuminated and likely originated at the surface, falling through the pit opening during its collapse. The hole is thought to be the result of a partially collapsed lava tube.
