Hey, here's a topic we haven't gotten around to yet... the Moon. Today we look at our closest astronomical companion: the Moon. What impact does the moon have on our lives, where did it come from, who walked on it, and are we ever going to walk on it again? We're going to learn about the phases, the tides and even a little bit about NASA's plans to return to the Moon.http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/astronomycast/~4/NdtgyFgzX5I

Here is 10 year old Galileo spacecraft photo. The photo used a green filter and allows for some interesting features to be visible. Of interest to me are the white, wispy linear features. Did the material come from impact craters or volcanoes? What causes the features/materials to be linear (no wind there!) What forces were at work? Thoughts ?

PS. Love Astronomy Cast and am always happy when a new episode appears. Hope to have a live A.C. in Second life or on live (interactive) web cam one day (like Volkel or adobe’s web cam service- could be fun!).

Hi Michael, welcome to BAUT!

Allow me a suggestion: your question will have a much greater chance of attracting viewers (and answers) in the Questions and Answers (http://www.bautforum.com/space-astronomy-questions-answers/) section.
Just try and start a new thread over there and see what happens ;)
Good luck!
