Summary (IBList user synopsis):

R.A. Lafferty has, in his twenty years as a science-fiction writer, told many unusual and droll tales of things others have rarely imagined. Here he suggests that Earth may have more than one moon—White Cow Moon, for instance, which is little known because it's comparatively small and orbits only a few feet over Earth's surface. Of course it would have been "colonized"—but by whom?

First published in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, September 28, 1981.
