If you look up at the moon tonight you will see the pale surface has many shadowy patches. These are caused by craters on the surface casting shadows. The light comes from the sun just as it does here on Earth.
NASA have released a video called “Evolution of the Moon” which shows the history of the moon. This is a violent history as the moon has been struck time and time again by meteorites – some of which have been large.

What did you make of the video? Was is strangely beautiful despite all the powerful impacts?
