The Lunarians were an advanced race of inhabitants living on the moon in a peaceful and tranquil existence. Little did they know that their small moon colony was about to change forever. It began with a faint hum on the distant horizon, like the eerie sound of a distant engine. The Lunarians looked up from their work to the horizon, unsure of what was coming. As the hum grew louder, their curiosity piqued.
The Lunarians watched in amazement as a strange craft approached their moon colony. It was like nothing they had ever seen before, and the hum of its engine filled the air. As the craft descended, the Lunarians could see it was clearly not of their own design. They were in awe of the unknown technology that had arrived in their midst, and they were eager to learn more. Little did they know that this encounter would spark a journey of discovery unlike any they had ever imagined.
The Lunarians curiously watched as the craft landed on the moon's surface. A loud thud echoed through the colony as the spacecraft touched down. Curiosity quickly turned to fear as the Lunarians gathered near the craft. The craft approached the moon and suddenly released a strange being. Slowly, an alien creature emerged from the spacecraft. The alien was white, with strange tattoos on its lumpy body and a blank, mirrored face. Its strange appearance startled the Lunarians, but they gathered their courage and cautiously approached the alien. The alien bowed in greeting, and the Lunarians nervously welcomed the alien to their colony. The alien then reached into its spacecraft and pulled out a strange flag. It was not a flag of the Lunarians but a flag of an alien race. The creature tried to plant a banner of sorts, with star-shaped emblems and stripes, much like the tattoos on their craft and arms.
The alien then used its strange technology to attach the flag to the moon's surface. With that, the alien bowed once more and returned to its spacecraft. The Lunarians watched in amazement as the alien spacecraft lifted off from the surface of the moon. As it flew away, they could still see the strange flag fluttering in the lunar breeze. To them, this was a sign of something greater- that their little colony on the moon was no longer alone. As they looked into the night sky, some of them wondered if this was only the beginning of something much bigger and more mysterious. After all, what if more aliens were out there, just waiting to be discovered?
The Lunarians were left with many questions, but they soon resumed their peaceful, tranquil existence. However, they never forgot the strange alien visitor or the strange flag that it had left behind. The Lunarians found the flag to be quite mysterious. They held a ceremony to honor the flag, and it soon became a symbol of their culture and identity. People from all over the moon gathered to admire its beauty and honor its mysterious origins. To this day, they still tell stories of that fateful day when an alien visitor brought a strange flag to their peaceful, tranquil existence.
During the 1800's Sir John Herschel, a well-respected astronomer, put forth the concept of a race of being called the Lunarians who lived on the moon. Upon seeing the numerous craters of the moon through his telescope, he believed that they were in fact, cities constructed by an intelligent race. This story is based upon this early assumption of a civilization of intelligent beings living on the moon and their first encounter with an alien species.
