Good morning Okanagan! Let’s get your long weekend started!
Fun Fact: Much like the Earth has earthquakes, the moon has moonquakes.
Moonquakes occur when meteoroids hit the surface and when the Earth’s gravitational pull squeezes and stretches the moon, similar to the moon’s pull on Earth’s oceans. Moonquakes occur roughly every 27 days.
