What in the world could this have been?
It's obvious that the inner sun of The Moon was spewing out through the opening, but how? And then the Moon became darkened? The plasma sun theory of David LaPoint requires the inner sun to be "fed" by radiation particles that enter through the polar extremes. Was the "feed" cut off? Was the energy sucked out? On purpose? By giant UFO motherships?
And then it "writhered"?
