There are still many questions that remain about the Moon, which this book examines. From concentric craters to lunar swirls, water vapor and lunar reverberations on impact, Foster collects it all for a fascinating tour that will illuminate the backyard observer's understanding of this easily viewed, yet also imperfectly understood, celestial object. Data from Apollo and a flotilla of unmanned Moon orbiters, crashers, and landers have all contributed to our understanding of the Moon, but these mysteries linger despite decades of research. When Project Apollo brought back lunar rocks and soil samples, it opened a new chapter of understanding Earth's lone natural satellite, a process that continues to this day, as old results are revisited and new techniques are used on existing samples. Topics such as the origin, evolution, structure and composition of the Moon, however, are still under debate. Lunar research is still an active field of study. New technologies make it possible to continue to learn. But even so, the Moon continues to hold tight to some of its oldest and most cherished secrets. Foster examines many of the most interesting puzzles and what has been revealed by exploring them – as well as what questions remain.

Our moon is an enigma. The ancients viewed it as a light to guide them in the darkness, and a god to be worshipped. In modern times, it has been taught that the Moon is simply a dead rock that is caught in Earth’s gravity, with no activity. As a researcher of metaphysical, paranormal and cosmic subjects, I have come across stories and information about the Moon that tell us that indeed there is activity there, and there has been for generations. Just who or what is causing the commotion is a mystery. There are stories that suggest that the Moon is home to extraterrestrials, theories that it is not a natural satellite, tales of anomalous lights, and tales that NASA astronauts saw extraterrestrial ships and ruins of an ancient civilization there. There is a rumor that Apollo13 was saved by extraterrestrials. Another story states that there are extraterrestrial bases on the Moon. There is even a tale that states that a part of the kingdom of Atlantis was once located there. Some even believe that there are cities beneath the surface of the Moon. There is an interesting account of a government employee using remote viewing as a means of seeing what is on the Moon. His experience is eye-opening! This is just a sample of the information that will be in The Encyclopedia of Moon Mysteries: Secrets, Conspiracy Theories, Anomalies, Extraterrestrials and More. For example, did you know that: • Aristotle and Plato wrote about a time when there was no Moon? They even gave a name of an ancient tribe of people that lived during that moonless period. • several of the NASA astronauts reported seeing UFOs while traveling to the Moon? • the Moon might be hollow? • Apollo 10 astronauts heard strange “space music” when traveling on the far side of the Moon? • strange and unexplained lights have been seen on the Moon for centuries? • there are said to be ruins of structures on the Moon? • there is an ancient tale that suggests that the first human was created on the Moon? • that radio signals have been detected coming from the Moon? • that famed astronomer Sir John Herschel saw unidentified lights above the Moon during an eclipse? • that ancient Bolivian symbols tell us that the Moon came into Earth’s orbit around 12,000 years ago? • a psychic was used by the government to relay information about the Moon? The book is separated into A to Z sections for easy reference and reading.

The simple question "How did the Maya come up with a calendar that had only 260 days?" led Vincent Malmström to discover an unexpected "hearth" of Mesoamerican culture. In this boldly revisionist book, he sets forth his challenging, new view of the origin and diffusion of Mesoamerican calendrical systems—the intellectual achievement that gave rise to Mesoamerican civilization and culture. Malmström posits that the 260-day calendar marked the interval between passages of the sun at its zenith over Izapa, an ancient ceremonial center in the Soconusco region of Mexico's Pacific coastal plain. He goes on to show how the calendar developed by the Zoque people of the region in the fourteenth century B.C. gradually diffused through Mesoamerica into the so-called "Olmec metropolitan area" of the Gulf coast and beyond to the Maya in the east and to the plateau of Mexico in the west. These findings challenge our previous understanding of the origin and diffusion of Mesoamerican civilization. Sure to provoke lively debate in many quarters, this book will be important reading for all students of ancient Mesoamerica—anthropologists, archaeologists, archaeoastronomers, geographers, and the growing public fascinated by all things Maya.

‘Steiner has been able to clarify the historical reality behind the Rosicrucian story, with all its aura of glamour and fantasy. That effected, he points to the enormity of its vision for the future evolution of ideas…’ – Dr Andrew Welburn (from the Introduction) In the immediate aftermath of the ‘Mystery-act’ of the Christmas Foundation Conference, Rudolf Steiner chose to speak on the subject of ‘Rosicrucianism and Modern Initiation, Mystery Centres of the Middle Ages’. Clearly connected to the events that had just taken place in Dornach – in which he not only refounded the Anthroposophical Society but took a formal position within it – Steiner begins by exploring the intellectual life of the Middle Ages and the role that Mystery culture played within it. He throws new light on the foundations of Rosicrucianism, its principles of initiation and its inherent impulse for freedom. Steiner also discusses the secret teachings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and the dawn of the age of the Archangel Michael. In the second series of lectures, entitled ‘The Easter Festival and the History of the Mysteries’ (April 1924), Steiner describes how festivals grew out of the Mysteries themselves. He speaks of Mysteries connected to Spring and Autumn, Adonis and Ephesus, and the significance of Sun and Moon. Throughout the volume he discusses the roles of Alexander the Great and Aristotle in world history and the significance of Aristotle’s ‘Categories’. Published for the first time as a single volume, the freshly revised text is complemented with an extensive introduction by Dr Andrew Welburn, detailed notes and appendices by Professor Frederick Amrine and an index.

Top 10 mystery reads by Kings River Life Magazine! “Interesting twists will keep readers guessing. If you’re looking for a fun mystery, this is for you!" -READERS' FAVORITE Murder Under A Blue Moon Mona Moon is not your typical young lady. She is a cartographer by trade, explorer by nature, and adventurer by heart.But there’s a problem. Miss Mona is broke. It’s during the Depression, and her application has just been turned down to join an expedition to the Amazon. What’s she to do? Perhaps get a job as a department store salesgirl. Anything to tide her over until the next assignment. There’s a knock on the door. Who could this be in the middle of the night? Holding a revolver, Mona reluctantly opens her door to a man wearing a Homburg hat and holding a briefcase. “I bring glad tidings. Your Uncle Manfred Moon has died and left you as his heir to the Moon fortune. You are now one of the richest women in the country!” he says. Mona’s response is to point her revolver in his face. If the stranger is telling the truth, she will apologize. If he is a fraud, she will shoot him. Murder Under A Blood Moon Mona is eating breakfast when she receives a telegram from her friend, Lady Alice Morrell, begging her to come to England. It seems Lady Alice is receiving death threats!

Once there, Mona encounters a nemesis she hasn’t seen for a very long time. She was lucky once to survive. Will she be as lucky now? Armed with her pistol, courage, and a bag of tricks, Mona is determined to save Lady Alice from harm. Murder Under A Bad Moon Mona has inherited a fortune from her uncle and is one of the richest women during the Depression. But there’s a problem. Miss Mona is being accused of murdering her neighbor by a corrupt sheriff. Mona has made enemies in the Bluegrass, and the sheriff’s been told to make life difficult for her. Mona is considered a radical and dangerous to the other horse owners. It’s too bad someone murdered Judge Landis Garrett, but if the evidence swings around Mona’s way––all the better if it sticks many of the locals think.

Murder Under A Silver Moon Mona has inherited a fortune from her uncle and is one of the richest women during the Depression. But there’s a problem. Miss Mona is bored. So she underwrites an expedition to find lost Native American silver mines in Eastern Kentucky. As a condition of underwriting the search, Mona gets to tag along, but soon discovers the expedition has a nefarious purpose. Mona finds herself lost in the Appalachian Mountains with only her wits to save her, but like the panthers roaming the mountain ridges, she is swift, silent, and deadly. Murder Under A Wolf Moon Mona attends an elegant party given by Elspeth Hopper, the daughter of a world-renowned archeologist of Egyptian Queen Ahsetsedek IV’s tomb. Not long afterwards, Elspeth’s maid is found murdered, and the local sheriff considers Mona a suspect. That doesn’t sit well with Mona. She’s determined to clear her name and find out who killed the maid and why. When she discovers the low-down varmint, she’ll take care of him her way! She doesn’t carry a gun in her purse for nothing. Murder Under A Black Moon Mona attends the Kentucky Derby with Lord Farley and his guest, the fabulous Alice Roosevelt Longworth, one of the most famous women in the world.

Ten Equations to Explain the Mysteries of Modern Astrophysics

This book introduces ten equations that transcend the boundaries of time and space. It takes readers through a journey of self-discovery where they will learn the history, science, and significance of these equations in the context of their lives. Moreover, the mathematical beauty of these equations is presented in a profoundly modest fashion to highlight the idea that equations are eternal but humans are transient. Each chapter offers readers a sublime experience and provides insights into the laws of nature that address the ever-expanding intricacy of our universe. The history of humankind, according to Franz Kafka, is the instant between two strides taken by a traveler. Therefore, what remains eternal when we finish our journey on this tiny rocky planet is our deep desire to connect with everything else in this universe. These equations capture the essence of that aspiration and remain everlasting while we continue our trivial human pursuits. These equations change the way we live and view the world and will outlast even the most enduring signs of our civilization. They have the potential to take us from planet to planet and perhaps to make us a cosmic species. They can destroy the last strand of DNA to terminate life as we know it and generate life again from the fundamental laws of nature. While these equations remain intangible, they can create a tangible world yet remain truly eternal.

As more information we can gather about our satellite and as more we know, we definitely know and approach to be able to explore about more secrets that it presents to us. In a certain way that Nicholas Copernicus warned us, when wisely said: “let no one expect anything certain from astronomy, which cannot furnish it”. His words, are considered that have been prophetical, adjusted like a ring in the finger of the Moon, above all, in this moment that we have approached to it, because our dear and enigmatic satellite has raised and keep raising enigmas daily.
