Thank you for visiting our web site. As you may see there are advertisements attached to this site as you view it. This is as a result of our agreement with the web host for free space on the web. Unfortunately, although the web host endeavours to place ads with an "Astronomy" theme, some of this advertising is misleading and not truly related to legitimate astronomy. For instance: some of the ads that appear are offering to "name a star" after you or a loved one, for a fee. The truth is that any name that is given to a star by these companies will only be known to you and anyone that you may tell it to. The naming of all astronomical objects is governed by the International Astronomical Union, and these companies are not associated with the IAU.

We apologise for and do not condone the content of these ads.

Scientists have shown that the moon is moving away at a tiny,
although measurable distance from the earth every year.
If you do the math, you cancalculate that 85 million years ago the moon
was orbiting the earth at a distance of about 35 feet from the earth's surface.
This would explain the death of the dinosaurs.
The tallest ones, anyway.
