Amazing fact of the week: Moon Quakes

Moonquakes, or “earthquakes” on the moon, do occur, though they are less common and less intense than those that shake Earth. According to scientists, moonquakes seem to be related to tidal stresses associated with the varying distance between the Earth and moon. Moonquakes also tend to occur at great depths, about midway between the lunar surface and its center.
