Some interesting facts!

Monks in the 16th century recorded seeing a giant explosion on the side of the Moon. It most likely was a large meteor that slammed into the Moon and left a large crater. It was a good thing the Moon was between us and the meteor! 

The fastest bird is the peregrine falcon. It can fly at a speed of 168-217 miles per hour. 

Vincent Van Gogh only sold 1 painting his whole life and that was to his brother! 

Elephants purr like cats do, as a means of communication.
