*Selenology: the branch of astronomy that deals with the nature and origin of the physical features of the moon.
“Isn’t it beautiful,” papa used to say staring lovingly up at the night sky. For hours he would gaze through the telescope and take notes of what he saw.
“What amazing craters.” Sometimes he would remark. Papa was an avid selenologist though he would always say selenology was just a hobby. But still every night he spent watching the moon.
