History Schmistory, June 18: No Monk-eying Around!

1178 - 5 Canterbury monks reported an explosion on moon. The monks sighting coincides with the Taurid meteor shower. Modern astronomers say that there would be spewing molten matter from a meteor impact, which would explain the monks description of the event.

The Moon, the moon, the moon is ON FIRE!

It also influenced the early settlers in New England and inspired later constitutional documents, including the United States Constitution. We The People say…

YIPEEE for LIBERTY!

Aw Man! Do I have to give up all my controlling powers?
