Scientists reveal the reason for the Moon to vanish in 1100


As per a research conducted by the scientists at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, a combination of sulphur, volcanic ash and cold weather led to the moon vanishing for months during 1100 CE. The study has been titled ‘Climatic and societal impacts of ‘Forgotten’ cluster of volcanic eruptions in 1108-1100 CS’. It¬†evidently stands true¬†to its name as it gives a deep insight as to what the volcanic eruption in that Millenium led to.

The findings in the recent study do not qualify to become concrete evidence for the moon going dark for months in 1100, but it does give away some evidence about the same. Researchers looked into medieval records which described dark lunar eclipses during that time. In one of the reports, it was stated that the lunar eclipses were affected due to the volcanic activity. Lunar phenomenons have been recorded evidence since centuries. The history of lunar eclipses have currently showcased the history of the earth accurately and is reportedly being used to do so yet again. It is not sure whether the reason behind the moon going dark for months had anything to do with the volcanic ashes and sulphur in the atmosphere, but the study has reportedly made many scientists around the world curious about the history of the moon in relation to the Earth.
