Mini-Movie Monday: Genesis Episode 6, The Moon (Synopsis)

“But even when the moon looks like it’s waning…it’s actually never changing shape. Don’t ever forget that.” -Ai Yazawa

You've seen the iconic crescent, quarter, gibbous and full phases for yourself, and probably even an eclipse or two. For millennia, the Moon has fascinated, delighted and mystified observers of the skies. Less than 50 years ago, in fact, we walked on it for the first time.

Yet even when we did so, we had no idea where our Moon actually came from! We're the only planet in the entire Solar System with a Moon that's such a large percentage of our mass and size. Yet here we are, and here it is. So how did it get here?

Come check out Genesis: Episode 6, The Moon, for a wonderful piece in the story of where all this comes from!
