Man in the Moon

Even in our smog- and light-polluted skies, however, the Moon shines bright and clear. Unlike the Sun, which appears uniform, the surface of the Moon has details we can see, even without a telescope. Even now, some three decades after human beings walked, skipped, and jumped on the Moon and even hit a golf ball across the lunar surface, the Moon holds wonder. Bathed in its silver glow, we may feel a connection with our ancestors of 10 millennia ago. Like them, we see in the lunar blotches the face of the “Man in the Moon.”
