Scientists the world are puzzled as to why there are flashes appearing the surface the moon. This unusual phenomenon has been happening several times a week. Sometimes the flashes light are very short, while other times the light lasts longer. Scientists have also observed that occasion, there are places on the moon's surface that darken temporarily. Experts on the moon have been speculating on what is the flashes. One scientist said the impact a meteorite can cause the moon's surface to glow briefly. Another scientist wondered whether the flashes occurred when electrically charged particles solar wind reacted moon dust.

A lunar telescope has been set in Spain to observe what is happening the moon. The head the team behind the telescope is Hakan Kayal, a professor space technology. He said: "Seismic activities were observed the moon. When the surface moves, gases that reflect sunlight could escape the interior of the moon. This would explain the luminous phenomena, some which last for hours." He added: "The so-called transient lunar phenomena have been known since the 1950s, but they have not been sufficiently observed." Professor Kayal said: "Anyone who wants to build a lunar base some point must course be familiar the local conditions."
