Year of the Moon: China, Japan Ready Lunar Probes for 2007
A renewal of robotic lunar exploration is ready for liftoff in 2007 - and
the United States. This year, China is set to launch its first lunar
followed by the summer sendoff of a mega-powerful mooncraft from Japan.
Full Moon Names for 2007
Full Moon names date back to Native Americans, of what is now the northern
eastern United States. Those tribes of a few hundred years ago kept track of
the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full Moon. Their
names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred.
