The Moon used to be closer to Earth


A Brighter Moon

Many traditions persist that at some time in the past the Moon was much brighter than it is now, and larger in appearance than the Sun. In many rabbinical sources it is stated that the Sun and the Moon were equally bright at first.(1) The same statement was made to de Sahagun by the aborigines of the New World: “the Sun and the moon had equal light in the past.” (2) At the other end of the world the Japanese asserted the same: the Nihongi Chronicle says that in the past “the radiance of the moon was next to that of the sun in splendor.” (3)
Traditions of many peoples maintain that the Moon lost a large part of its light and became much dimmer than it had been in earlier ages.(4)
In order that the Sun and the Moon should give off comparable light, the Moon must have had an atmosphere with a high albedo (refracting power)(5)or it must have been much closer to the earth. In the latter case the Moon would have appeared larger than the Sun. In fact, the Babylonian astronomers computed the visible diameter of the Sun as only two-thirds of the visible diameter of the Moon, which makes a relation of four to nine for the illuminating surfaces. This measure surprised modern scholars, who are aware of the exactness of the measurements made by the Babylonian astronomers and who reason that during the eclipses one can easily observe the approximate equality of the visible disks.(6)

Not only do these units demonstrate mastery of nuclear power and massive electro-potential force
fields, but also they show an ability to modify extensive surface areas of
large celestial bodies. Indeed, a realistic possibility is raised that goodsized celestial bodies can be moved about.

I have long understood that the Moon was once closer to earth and is, in fact, continuing to distance itself. Something to do with the braking effect of gravity and as the satellite slows it moves to a wider orbit.

I just ordered the book 'who built the moon?'

The Ringmakers of Saturn make it clear that extra terrestrial craft are big enough to move planets around.

I have a lot to learn in this realm. I am nearly a signed-up David Icke groupie! His ideas are far more based on facts than I realised, though he deals in stuff I have no idea bout like holographic realities.

Maybe the moon isn't so bright because the atmosphere/ionosphere is full of toxic pollutants like aluminium and barium from the chemtrails across the world that we are being hammered with courtesy of the UN.

I hear people say that they don't see blue skies any more. I hear people say they don't see so many birds anymore.

The best time to see the moon used to be at night... now we have chemtrailing at night too... time to sell that powerful telescope on eBay... it's practically useless now.
