I used to buy that tabloid when I was young just to be entertained, I even knew as a kid that their material was all made up but it was the equivalent of buying a mad magazine for me as far as I was concerned... toilet material ( sorry, but that's what it was! ) .. It was one of those things I would get when I was in the checkout line with my mom because it always had outrageous photos .. like the president shaking hands with an alien, or the famous bat boy photo in their logo...

They have absolutely zero credibility as a valid news source.

Thank you, for your gentle response. I am relieved to hear I am not the only person in a mushroom state that could fall for this. (Mushroom state = in the dung and in the dark)

Now we too know about this source.

I applogise for saying:
the rubbish your country prints. This has nothing to do with countries, only in the context that where I live we do not get the same stuff as you, and most definately no hoax mags. Did not even know hoax mags exists beyond our regular newspapers!

Lets not be condecending. From the sky there are no borders.

SA is famous for lots.

One small example out of a bottomless pit: Dr Chris Barnard was the first doctor in the world to perform open heart transplant successfully on humans. He paved/pioneered the way for heart surgery from South Africa.








Peace.

This seems legit to me, and to you?





BUSBY - Residents of this small Australian town were shocked to see two full moons in sky!Tonight, there’s a full moon in Busby, Australia. Many residents were admiring it when at 1:20 a.m., local time, a second moon rose in the night sky.

Residents couldn’t believe what they were seeing! Astronomers across the world were alerted to this sighting and have confirmed the existence of a second earth moon. “We have never seen anything like this before,” said researcher Rich Montano at the University of California, Los Angeles. There had been some rumors that a second moon was seen over Hong Son, Thailand in 1967, but it was only seen for a few hours and only in that one location, but now everyone across Australia can see the second moon. It’s awe-inspiring.

Residents of Los Angeles, and the rest of the world, will be able to see the second moon with the naked eye as night falls. Busby residents are out in the streets staring up in wonder at the second moon. “It’s exciting, but also frightening,” said Carol McNulty of Busby. “It’s so beautiful, but what does it mean? Why did the second moon appear tonight? Why?

NASA astronomers are studying the second moon carefully. The powerful Japanese telescope, the Subaru, is also focused on the second moon. When asked to explain this phenomenon the head of NASA’s Lunar Science Division had this simple statement, “We don’t know. We are studying it, but it has us all baffled.”

lol its not even a full moon on the lunar calendar right now, its a new moon, don't matter where you view it from since the moon doesn't rotate. 100% FAKE , should be ashamed of yourselves for believing this


Should be ashamed at myself for believing this?

You, Supergodlikeperfectbeing, have never made a mistake and have no flaws.

In your supreme bright light my human flaws lay before you eluminated for all to relish upon, I humbly ask your forgiveness for being born at all!!

Wow. you really are something.

As far as I'm concerned the OP has more credibility than ANY of the 9/11, NWO, and government conspiracy theorists that get on here and post their rubbish.

don't worship me just yet buddy, i just happened to look up at the sky the other night to see what lunar phase the moon was in. But you're on the right track, in this day and age a little common sense can seem divine and godlike to folks like you.

"moon doesn't rotate"

the Moon does rotate. If you stood on the Moon, the stars would rise and set, just like they do on Earth, except that a lunar day is a month long, the same as the Moon's orbital period. The Moon rotates at just the right speed so that it always keeps one face pointed toward the Earth........

the moon rotates?

2. The Moon only shows one face to the Earth

Although the Moon used to rotate in the sky compared to our point of view, it has been slowing down billions of years. And at some point in the distant past it just stopped turning from our perspective. The Earth’s gravity holds the Moon in orbit, but it pulls differently at various parts of the Moon. Over a long period, gravity slowed down the Moon’s rotation so that it finally stopped, and always displayed one face to the Earth. A similar situation has happened with most of the large moons in the Solar System. In fact, in the case of Pluto and Charon, but objects are tidally locked to each other, so they present only one face to the other.

It's the weekly world news. In other words, completely made up.

This is the same tabloid magazine that keeps us updated on the whereabouts of Bat Boy ( Half boy, half bat)and proudly uses his image in their logo.

If I recall correctly, I even remember seeing a story about Elvis not really being dead, he just met Bigfoot, fell in love and they ran off together......... Something like that. It made me laugh.

Anyway, Sorry, but it didn't happen.

We've all been fooled before. All we can do is learn and move on.


Peace and love

I was leaning toward an optical illusion at first, maybe the moon reflecting on something. But the fact it's rotated 90 degrees pretty much proves it's photoshopped I guess.

Wish it was real though. I could do with a good spin out!

Ok, mate, typical response i would expect to hear here. Wow, the ignorance is on level 100 again today.


Several important scientific and technological developments have originated in South Africa. The first human-to-human heart transplant was performed by cardiac surgeon Christiaan Barnard at Groote Schuur Hospital in December 1967.

Max Theiler developed a vaccine against Yellow Fever, Allan McLeod Cormack pioneered x-ray Computed tomography, and Aaron Klug developed crystallographic electron microscopy techniques. These advancements were all (with the exception of that of Barnard) recognised with Nobel Prizes

. Sydney Brenner won most recently, in 2002, for his pioneering work in molecular biology.

Mark Shuttleworth founded an early Internet security company Thawte, that was subsequently bought out by world-leader VeriSign. Despite government efforts to encourage entrepreneurship in biotechnology, IT and other high technology fields, no other notable groundbreaking companies have been founded in South Africa

. It is the expressed objective of the government to transition the economy to be more reliant on high technology, based on the realisation that South Africa cannot compete with Far Eastern economies in manufacturing, nor can the republic rely on its mineral wealth in perpetuity.

South Africa has cultivated a burgeoning astronomy community. It hosts the Southern African Large Telescope, the largest optical telescope in the southern hemisphere.

South Africa is currently building the Karoo Array Telescope as a pathfinder for the €1.5 billion Square Kilometer Array project.[82] South Africa is a finalist, with Australia, to be the host of the SKA.


Go and educate yourself a bit before making ignorant statements!

There is a world outside the US mate, get to know it, it will be to your advantage.

Your attitude is clearly that of an arrogant American.

Go and read a bit mate. I only showed you a small piece from the wiki article. You are so blinded by your arrogance that you have shut your mind to any information.

Then people still wonder why Americans are not that popular across the world....
