- from Moon
The Moon is the source of many folk tales, myths, and legends.
Europeans once saw a face on the lunar surface and called it the Man in the Moon, who was thought to be imprisoned there for some terrible crime. Hawaiians gazing at the Moon saw a woman, while Mayans looking at it saw a rabbit. All of these Moon myths do have one thing in common. They were people’s attempts to explain something that appeared unexplainable.
