More moongas


In a previous post I discussed the idea being forwarded by Columbia University astronomer Arlin Crotts that moon transients (called Transient Lunar Phenomena or “TLPs”) are caused by outgassing events.   Now, in an an article on physorg.com some further details emerge.  The article briefly discusses some of the statistical methods he used to correlate the TLPs with known radon gas emission sites.

  1. Ever seen one for yourself? Not me, but I know people who spend hours watching the moon, they swear they see something. 🙂

  2. Heh! No, I’ve never seen one. They appear to be so rare that many people doubt they exist in the first place.

    By the way, for a chuckle go read the comments on the physorg.com story.
