Moon Disappears from Sky, Supposedly Eaten by Spaceship
"Normally when there's a new moon, you can still see sort of a shadow where the moon is supposed to be," professional astronomer Spazz Hopper was quoted as saying. "But there's no shadow anymore. It's gone, completely gone, like the last cookie on the plate after you turn your back on that hungry kid."
The most likely theory, Hopper points out, is that a more massive celestial body passed by the Earth and pulled the moon out of its orbit, though no evidence of such a celestial body has turned up.
Several stargazers, on the other hand, have a different theory of what happened that night. They claim that a giant spaceship came by and "swallowed" the moon.
"I swear that's what I saw that night," high school student Hector Headcase insists. "The moon was full, and then this big spacecraft came by and opened its mouth, and CHOMP, the moon was gone."
"It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see through that theory," Hopper argued when asked for his opinion. "The moon is approximately 2,160 miles in diameter. This alleged spaceship would have to be three times as large as Earth to be able to 'swallow the moon' like everyone says it did, and if something that big passed that close to us, there's no way it couldn't have at least thrown the Earth's rotation out of whack with its gravity."
Despite the scientific impossibility of it, observers continue to insist on the moon's fate, and some have even taken photos of the spaceship. Hopper maintains that there's a logical explanation for all this, but even now it remains a mystery.

Yep, another fake news article by yours truly. I actually wrote this the day after the last one was posted, but I waited a week because I didn't want any inhibiting overlapping of interest to occur. -SonicLover
