China to Launch an Artificial Moon to Light Up a City at Night — That’s no moon!

China plans to launch an artificial moon into space over Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province in 2020, with further plans to have three more orbiting by the year 2022.

So the question on everyone’s minds, okay, not everyone but at least the Alien Monkeys, is what else does the moon do other that beam down light from the night sky.

ABOARD THE MILLENNIUM FALCON

LUKE:  Look at him. He’s headed for that small moon.

HAN: I think I can get him before he gets there… he’s almost in range.

The small moon begins to take on the appearance of a monstrous
spherical battle station.

BEN: That’s no moon! It’s a space station.

HAN: It’s too big to be a space station.

LUKE: I have a very bad feeling about this.

HAN: Yeah, I think your right.
