Crater

Five monks from Canterbury reported to the abbey's chronicler, Gervase, that shortly after sunset on June 18, 1178, they observed "the upper horn [of the moon] split in two.” What they saw was possibly the Giordano Bruno crater being formed.


It is believed that the current oscillations of the Moon's distance from the Earth are a result of the collision that the monks witnessed.

The largest crater on the moon measures 183 miles across.
