People have seen lightning coming from the Moon for thousands of years, but we still do not understand why this is happening or what causes it.
The strange phenomenon is known as Transient Lunar (TLP) phenomena and
Hakan Kail from the University of Würzburg in Bavaria works on a project that can reveal the causes of rapid changes in light and darkness on the moon.
He used a completely new type of telescopic system based in Spain and is already advancing, although it has been in use since April.
Kayal describes the TLP glimpses as bursts of light that last for seconds, but popular science notes that some "flashes" have been observed that illuminate the surface of the Moon for hours at the same time.

TLP is often seen several times a week and can sometimes leave dark spots on the Moon.
Popular explanations for them include meteor effects and gas released from the moon waves.
The first confirmed observation of the TLP was made by a Russian astronomer in 1
Kail's new telescope system, which is still being developed, is a fairly low budget and includes two telescopes that constantly monitor the Moon with cameras and transmit what they see to computers powered by artificially intelligent software.

Astronomers believe it is important to understand what causes the phenomenon before people reach the moon again, with some of the explanations for the TLP being dangerous.
