The new prophet who had appeared upon the moon

Strange changes were reported to an isolated object in the eastern part of the moon’s Mare Serenitatis, known as Linne. Before October 1866, Linne was well-known as a dark object. On Dec. 14, 16, 25 and 27 of 1866, Linne was seen as a white spot. “But,” Fort writes, “there was something that had the seeming more of a design, or of a pattern, an elaboration upon the mere turning to white of something that had been black.” Sunlight seemed to have nothing to do with its changing appearance.
