    Stop looking at your phone and start looking at the moon now!


    According to researchers at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), a giant rabbit-shaped impression with 3,000 kilometres wide on the moon was created by a collision with a giant meteorite over 3.9 billion years ago.


    The length of the low-calcium pyroxene distribution was around 3,000 kilometres, nearly the length of the moon’s diameter. The meteorite that created the basin is thought to have been around 300 kilometers in diameter.


    The rabbit-shape is said to have been made when lava erupted after the meteorite and other meteorites hit, collecting and blackening on the surface. The side of the moon that cannot be seen from the Earth is different, nearly completely white and having a thick crust.
