A huge granite “body” on the far side of the Moon provides evidence of ancient volcanoes

A large granite formation discovered under an ancient lunar volcano is further evidence that the far side of the Moon was once glowed by volcanic eruptions.

The granite has been found under a suspected volcanic feature on the Moon called the Compton-Belkovichi. This feature likely formed as a result of cooling magma that fed fiery eruptions of lunar volcanoes about 3.5 billion years ago.
