It was announced yesterday that Michael Jackson's funeral was to be held on the moon. It would coincide with the full moon to give the maximum number of people across the globe a chance to view the ceremony.
Special telescopes were being auctioned on Ebay, with some punters paying up to fifty times their commercial value.
Jackson fan Jeremy Maxwell, was one of those who obtained one of the telescopes.
"It's so exciting," he said. "I've never been interested in the moon before now. I mean, man, it's like.. just there, but now it's making history. It's like Neil Armstrong all over again."
The priest will be wearing a special black space suit and the rocket to carry the funeral group is called 'The Bubble', sponsored by NASA.
