Astronomers first were able to pre-determine the cause of the appearance of the moon flashes, which was first noticed over 60 years ago, but still could not explain
According to “Live Science”, researchers are known about the mysterious flashes on the moon, at least since the late 1960s, when scientists Barbara Melchert and Patrick Moore has studied the literature and found almost 400 references to the strange events on the moon. Small areas of the lunar surface suddenly become brighter or darker with no apparent reason. Overview scientists about flares and changes in brightness on the moon was published in the journal “Science” on 27 January 1967.
According to the descriptions, the light emitted is reddish or pinkish, sometimes sparkling. This glow may extend to a distance of 16 kilometers or more on the surface of the moon. The average event duration is about 20 minutes, but the glow may persist intermittently and within a few hours. Amateur astronomers sometimes discover the flash with a telescope, although they are unpredictable, and detection may require hours or days of waiting. At the end of the event do not leave obvious traces on the surface of the moon.
Scientists periodically returned to the subject for five decades, but found no detailed explanation. It is known that flares occur a few times a week. This year a team of astronomers developed a new approach to the study of the subject, especially developing an Observatory to monitor outbreaks.
New device constantly monitors the Moon using two cameras, located 100 km North of Seville in Spain. The Observatory is still in the development stage, and since April of this year, continuing improvements to the software. However, the researchers already have some explanations about the origin of the outbreaks.
“Seismic activity is observed on the moon. When the surface moves, the inner part of the moon can come to the surface in Gaza, reflecting the sunlight. This explains the appearance of light flashes, which can last for hours,” said project leader Hakan Kajal.
He added that because of existing plans to establish a base on the moon, it is important to know what is happening to living on the basis of the people were prepared for the new environment.
Recall, NASA scientists have warned of a terrible danger.
