HOUSTON - Recent photos that were taken of the moon have turned up what scientists are calling an amazing discovery.
NASA reports that the photos which were taken with the RM-8000 Alpha Camera, which is the most powerful camera in the entire world, have shown that a canyon exists on the moon.
The canyon had never before been noticed in any of the more than 70,000 moon pictures that are in existence.
Scientists explain this by saying that the reason why the huge canyon had never been spotted before was because of the dense cloud cover that exists on that specific part of the moon.
One highly respected scientist Dr. Currington S. Clexweiser, 58, stated that the moon's canyon rivals Arizona's Grand Canyon in size, depth, and color.
Dr. Clexweiser was asked what possibly could have caused the huge canyon to form. He paused for a moment and then replied that he believes that it could have been a tremendous earthquake which most probably measured a stupendous 13.4 on the Richter Scale.
SIDENOTE: Dr. Clexweiser pointed out that they will have to have the RM-8000 Alpha Camera take closer photographs in order to see if the moon's canyon has any water in it.
