In the 1960s, astronomers observed the Moon as two points moving around the Earth.. Since then many debates and speculations have faced different hypotheses. Now a group of Hungarian scientists has determined that they are two secret months that are completely secretive, which can be completely revolved around the planet and affect future plans for space exploration.
According to the new study published in the monthly magazine of the Royal Academy of Astronomy, there is a large amount of dust. 1600 kilometers from the worldIt is approximately 385,000 kilometers far from the most famous satellite. They are very large: they measure up to 100,000 each for 70,000 kilometers.

It was first observed in 1961 when the Polish astronomer was observed. Kazimierz KordylewskiTheir names have always been too ambiguous because of their composition, as they have not previously come to an agreement on the nature of their name.
"Kordylewski's two of the most difficult objects to find the clouds."He told National Geographic Judit Slíz-BaloghShe is the co-author of the study and the professor at the University of Eötvös Loránd, Budapest. "Astronomers have overlooked them largely, and our planet is wondering if we can verify that the moon is the pseudo-satellites in orbit along with our neighbors.".

Although the clouds are a few times larger than the Earth, it is estimated that the particles that make them measure a micron perimeter. The sun reflected on them lightly shines them, and if they remain hidden in the darkness of space, it is only due to the enormous lightness.
"It is very difficult to identify Kordylewski clouds against the galactic light, the light of the stars, the zodiac light and the brightness of the sky."other co-author said Gábor HorváthEötvös Loránd & # 39; s physicist NatGeo & # 39; To photograph them, the Hungarian team used polarization filters on cameras. Thus, they revealed the diffused light reflected from the individual particles in the clouds.
The astronomers generations thought that the Earth could last more than a month., remembered the article. They decided that there were five stability points that could be called Lagrange points. In the 1950s, Kordylewksi explored the L4 and L5 of the Earth-Moon system and photographed them in 1961. There, they continued the work of Hungarian scientists.
