Another lunar fact that the Moon actually has clouds. Surveyor probes in the 60's observed rays of light taken after sunset that could only happen if light was being reflected off of fine "clouds" of lunar dust rising above the surface.

FlyingLizardOfDoom: MusicMakeMyHeadPound: buntz: But if you did aim the proper way, would it be possible to shoot a baseball to Mars?

You do know that we currently have our second land rover on Mars, right?

There's no sight of the morning coming, there's no sign of the day. You've been left on your own, like a Rainbow, like a Rainbow on the Moon . . .

Apparently, the Moon just got 20% cooler. 

This is now a Rainbow Dash thread.

This pleases Luna.

buntz: Would it possible to shoot something in the direction of the moon and actually hit it?

Yes, we called it "Apollo 11"

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
and what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
and rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it.
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.
