Every morning and afternoon, like clockwork, the surface of the Moon trembles with tiny "moonquakes." Now, new analysis of seismic activity on the Moon has characterized these events and discovered that some of them are not what they seem.

W Herschel used a 10 foot telescope to study the Sun in 1801 and hypothesized that the sun was a solid Earth-like sphere with atmosphere. 60 years later, J Herschel noted that patterns on the solar surface could be igneous snowflakes, giant fish swimming in the photosphere, or monsters
