The man in the moon's face was actively formed by hot lava and other geological forces.
Most of the moon's craters were formed by asteroid crash landings millions or billions of years ago, but more recent collisions are also making their mark.

How many times have you actually seen a star explode or a asteroid at night? Have ever learned about how the records of these events are taken? Then tune in.
