I do not know if this subject is anyhow discussed in English-speaking Internet. I pretty tenuously researched it and really found no information. So, I wanted to share it with you. In fact, it is a translation of the other article at a Russian site http://ufobase.ru/ Do not judge biased looking at the site name – it was the first link Google gave me. Though I have researched this topic some time ago reading through different sources. It is really a summary of it all. Plus, there is a good illustration.
So here we go:
At the moment the Moon is the closest and mysterious satellite of our planet. Modern science can not explain much of the Moon (facts). For example, the fact that the moon is always turned to us with one side, that the lanscape of the invisible part of the moon is completely different from the other, as if it were two completely different celestial bodies formed at different times. But Earth has not always had one moon, as it is now.
My notes: Мидгард = Midgard (Earth in Slavo-Aryan Vedas, later borrowed by Indian culture, so now they have their own Vedas. Slavic (Russian) culture lost Vedas due to outrageous and forced сhristianization) in 988. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christianization_of_Kievan_Rus%27
Луна Леля = Lel moon – orbital period 7 days
Луна Фатта = Fattah moon – orbital period 13 days
Луна Месяц = ‘Myesyaz’/Month moon (in Russian culture it is called “sickle moon”) – orbital period 29.5 days
End of my notes
The Slavonic-Aryan Vedas and other ancient sources say that the Earth originally had two moons. This small moon – Lel and large – Month. Lelia revolved around the Earth with an orbital period of 7 days. Month orbital period was 29.5 days. Moons were gravitationally stabilizing satellites of the planet, allowing to maintain the desired eccentricity of the orbit, slowing down or speeding up rotation of the Earth. Thus, the duration of the year and the number of days in a month were precisely regulated. But the moons were also a wonderful springboard for the invasion and capture of the planet. Such events are narrated in the Vedas.
More than 150,000 years ago there was another stellar battle in our galaxy. It also touched our solar system. Massive battle played out for the possession of the planet Phaeton. Planet Phaeton had two moons: Fattah and Letizia. Fattah was a larger companion of Phaeton, and it carried frontier forces to repel a possible attack. However, the enemy managed to capture Letizia as a springboard to attack. It was decided to move (teleportation) Phaeton through Newerth/Otherworld to another star system, along with the population. After that Letitia was struck by a powerful blow. There was an enormous explosion and Leticia was destroyed. However, the explosion was so powerful that it blew away much of the Mars and several Jupiter’s moons atmosphere which were from the Phaeton side. After these events, the moon Fattah became the third satellite of the Earth. Month and Lel were in their orbits, and Fattah was placed between them.
Fattah rotated in the equatorial plane of the Earth. Due to the fact that Fattah was slightly smaller than Month and had great speed under the Earth and Fattah influence Lel got ovoid shape. As a result of the rotation of the three moons around the Earth its climate started to change, new species of plants and animals appeared. (In astrological calculations still (apart from the moon) the so-called “fictitious planets”: Black Moon – Lilith (Lel) and the White Moon – Selena (Fattah) are used).
Around 112,000 years ago moon Lel was captured by enemies, and considerable forces were focused on it. (In the Vedas they are called “Koschei – rulers of the gray.” Grave danger of the Earth invasion threatened. Then Tarkh Perunovich (curator and patron of Rossinia – Perun’s son) was forced to destroy the moon Lel together with all the enemies on it. A blow was dealt at a time when Lel and Month were on one side of the Earth, and Fattah was on the other. Month was already ahead of Lel in its orbital motion. As Lel was the nearest moon to us it was imposible to avoid the catastrophe, unfortunately. Pieces of the destroyed moon mostly flown into space beyond the orbit of the Month, causing some destruction on it and blowing its atmosphere away, and a few large fragments fell to the Earth. This caused the first Global Flood and, asa results, the first Ice Age in Earth’s history. It drowned the northern continent Da’Arias (Arctida, Hyperborea), where at that time lived in the general population of the Earth, into depths of the ocean.
As Lel had 50 salty seas and it its own atmosphere the waters of the Arctic Ocean became salty (before that they were fresh). It changes not only the appearance of the Earth, but also the temperature conditions on the planet. The Earth’s axis started a pendulum movement and changed its tilt. Intensive motions of continental plates began with the formation of new mountain ranges and land spaces. But people were warned in advance by a votary by the name of the Savior (Russian “Spas”), who had a vision during the service about a coming catastrophe. He made calculations of moons movement and found that such an event could easily happen. It was decided to begin the resettlement of people family lines (Russian “rod”) to the southern area of the Earth, which had already begun to get rid of the waters. Da’Arias sank gradually, so in 15 years people gradually moved along the narrow land bridge of the Ural Mountains on the territory of modern Trans-Urals and Siberia.
