Ever since I was a kid, I thought the moon looked like a peeled orange, with lines coming out from a "navel" or crater. This always seemed odd to me.

Look at about 7 o'clock and all the "segment" lines emanating from that point

Those are the well-known rays from the crater Tycho. Many craters on the moon have that feature, but Tycho's are the most prominent.

As I recall, Percival Lowell (who popularized the idea of "canals" on Mars after Schiaparelli first described what he saw as channel-like markings) also drew canals on Venus. I think he left the Moon alone, though!

Thanks for the name of crater, looked it up on Wikki

Age and Description
Tycho is a relatively young crater, with an estimated age of 108 million years (Ma), based on analysis of samples of the crater rays recovered during the Apollo 17 mission. This age suggests that the impactor may have been a member of the Baptistina family of asteroids, but as the composition of the impactor is unknown this is currently conjecture. However, simulation studies give a 70 percent probability that the crater was created by a fragment from the same break-up that created asteroid 298 Baptistina;[1] a larger asteroid from the same family may have been the impactor responsible for creating Chicxulub Crater on Earth 65 million years ago (mya), and causing the extinction of the dinosaurs.

The crater is sharply defined, unlike older craters that have been degraded by subsequent impacts. The interior has a high albedo that is prominent when the Sun is overhead, and the crater is surrounded by a distinctive ray system forming long spokes that reach as long as 1,500 kilometers. Sections of these rays can be observed even when Tycho is illuminated only by earthlight (sunlight reflected off the Earth).

the moon is like a skull, and there is actually a brain inside which monitors all things on earth.
