Talking Coffee on Moon ?

Well, it's coffee time ... on the moon

Quote:
Picture this: A cup of coffee, steaming and black. Add a dollop of milk and gently stir. Eddies of cream go swirling around the cup.

Magnify that image a million times and you've got a Lunar Swirl.

Lunar swirls are strange markings on the Moon that resemble the cream in your coffee—on a much larger scale. They seem to be curly-cues of pale moondust, twisting and turning across the lunar surface for dozens of miles. Each swirl is utterly flat and protected by a magnetic field.

Ok-Ok, you'll be informed on time

But those structures on the moon are real, and nobody knows what they are - read the article if you want your cup of coffee on the moon
