Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Clow Hartigan spends day after lonely day on the moon. The boring old moon, with nothing going on... no excitement, no danger, and definitely no adventure. Being the only man at the moon's only emergency landing facility could drive a man stark-raving mad.

Then, as he's out on his daily stroll, a flash of light and a concussive, soundless thud announces the impact of a periodic meteor landing. Clow doesn't know it right away, but the moon just got more interesting.

Originally published in the February 1939 edition of Astounding.

Also appears in The Omnibus of Science Fiction and Science Fiction, Science Fact, and You.
