The moon was formed by volcanoes on earth ejecting material into near orbit. Not by collision.
When a volcano erupts it will sometimes eject material such as rock fragments into the atmosphere. This material is known as tephra.
The largest pieces of tephra (greater than 64 mm) are called blocks and bombs. Blocks and bombs are normally shot ballistically from the volcano (refer to the gas thrust zone described in the direct blast section). Because these fragments are so large they fall out near their source. Blocks and bombs as large as 8-30 tons have fallen as far away as 1 km from their source (Bryant, 1991). Small blocks and bombs have been known to travel as far away as 20-80 km (Scott, 1989)! Some of these blocks and bombs can have velocities of 75-200 m/s (Bryant, 1991). Smaller ejecta such as lapilli (2-64 mm) and ash (
Nice try, to spin the unusual, and unexplainable again into some scientific point made by certain "geologists"
Holy Macarooni, the pay must be good to be a Shill! IMO! so I've heard.
Do you have nice windows where you are posting from? Mine are crystal clear and the sun sets well more to the northern hemisphere than before, as it would, if you understood some of the global changes that have been ongoing. Oklahoma and many states are experiencing the strangest events ever imaginable.
Anyway "EarthQuake Watch" on ATS is thourogh and always opiononated!
