Strange Lights Seen on the Moon.
I apologize for the shortage of info so far this week, but it's been a really slow week for space and astronomy news. Could someone please launch or discover something? I'd really appreciate it.

STRANGE LIGHTS SEEN ON THE MOON
A French Astronomer has obtained definite proof that clouds of light can sometimes be seen on the surface of the moon. scientists have long believed that the Moon is a completely inactive, dead world, but Astronomers have claimed to see strange lights dancing across the surface. Known as Transient Lunar Phenomena, the strange glow could be caused by escaping gas that lifts dust above the lunar surface into the sunlight.
NEXT MIR MISSION PLANNED
A new mission to the Mir space station later this year is in the works. Although, the exact launch date is still unknown, cosmonauts Pavel Vinogradov and Salizhan Sharipov should arrive by the end of November. The current cosmonauts on board will return to Earth at the end of this week.
OBSERVING BUMPS ON THE SUN
New research gained by using the Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI) experiment on the ESA-NASA SOHO spacecraft has led Astronomers to believe that the Sun is covered with evenly spaced bumps, 100 meters high and 90,000 kms apart. It's believed these bumps are caused by an effect known as the Rossby waves, which produce a grid pattern of solar cyclones across the surface of the sun.
