Trending: China Moon

Central PA Live

Chinese scientists are planning to launch an artificial moon into orbit by the year 2020.

They want to hang a man-made moon above the capital of China’s southwestern province to help light the streets after dark.

It’s going to be a satellite with a reflective coating that will cast sunlight back to earth. Scientists say the moon will orbit closer to earth and be eight times as bright as the actual moon.
