New York, NY-- Sky-watchers will have a very rare treat later this month when the moon shows its other face to Earth. The familiar 'man in the moon' will be gone, but only for a day. The dark side of the moon will shine instead, revealing its alien side to the human race. Such an event takes place only once in a million centuries.
The moon has been locked into place for billions of years. Its solemn gaze has looked upon the earth the same way for countless eons. All that will change later this month when the earth passes through the Galactic Plane.
"Everyone should look carefully at the next Full Moon." said the famous astronomer Dr. Karl Saygun. "Everyone will be astonished!" he promised.
Dr. Saygun then revealed a secret NASA has been keeping for decades. The dark side of the moon has been colonized by aliens. Domed craters, flying saucer airports and strange moon cities should be easily visible to the naked eye by even the most casual observer.
"Look quickly!" advised Dr. Saygun. "It only lasts a day, and then it won't happen again for a bbbbbillllyon years!" he stammered.
Although it is being reported in the news, very few people seem interested.
"Most people could care less, especially in America." said Dr. Saygun in a sad voice. "Everyone will be looking at crap like 'American Idle' or watching the college basketball playoffs instead."
