What To See
When You
Visit The Moon
The poet who first rhymed
moon with June, spoon and croon
could have been the same man
who named the bumps and holes
on earth’s natural satellite.
The first rocket ship to the
moon may well land in the Sea
of Tranquillity, for example. If
it misses that mark, it could land
in the Sea of Crises.
From that point, a spaceman
could walk north to investigate
the Sea of Fertility and the Sea
of Nectar. Hopping across a
mountain range and the Catha
rina crater, he would come to
the Sea of Clouds, just west of
the Sea of Moisture. He might
want to bypass the Ocean of
Storms and stroll south between
Copernicus and Kepler both
craters named for scientists
to the Bay of Dews.
On his way back to the space
ship, he might look over the Lake
of the Sleepers and the Lake of
the Dead.
Of course, these names
translated into English from Lat
in might confuse a spaceman
with no poetry in his soul. Ac
cording to World Book encyclo
pedia, there is no water on the
moon and the “seas” and
“oceans” are just dry plains.

Could your business survive
an “Out-of-Business” period
resulting from fire?
The low rate for Business In
terruption Insurance due to
Fire, Windstorm, Vandalism
or other specific Perils causing
a crippling lapse in Income
means that the small merchant
as well as the large firm
should have this relatively
new form of protection.
