07/14 Moonlight Festival at Brno Observatory
Did you know that the Moon was actually a part of Earth, some time ago…?
Scientist speculate about that because our Moon has similar composition and is very close to Earth; reputedly, the Moon should have been formed form the same material the Earth is made of. Some 95 million years ago, something has chipped of a piece of molten Earth in its state of formation, creating us a shiny satellite.
Gravity on Moon is 17% that of the Earth. Therefore, if you were to jump there, it would make one hell of a slam-dunk. The temperatures range from positive 134 to minus 150 degrees Celsius. So, no life as we know it could be established there, unfortunately.
Moon’s gravity causes a number of events on Earth. For instance, tides of seas, in some cases lakes. High tides result from the Moon being at the nearest and furthest position from us. Moon may also be the case of our stable climate and position in the solar system, which allows us to have bearable temperature for existence. Indeed, there many mysteries surrounding our closest neighbor in the universe.
To celebrate the existence of this incredible space body closely tied to our lives, Brno Observatory and Planetarium and facilities of Kraví hora invites you to the light installations, light-painting, synchronized swimming, and film projections – spend an unforgettable Friday night out at Kraví hora.
Special tip: The organizers wrote on their Facebook “night swimming included,” so don’t forget your swimwear at home!
