These quartzite formations took place during the Cambrian geological period which lasted for about 55 million years and began about 500 million years ago. It's worth noting that during that period the average Moon distance from Earth was approximately 40 thousand miles shorter, which must have resulted in a much bigger lunar disc than seen in this photo.
This photograph is part of my ongoing Terra Formation project, in which I explore the history of our planet through evidenced transformations which Earth has undergone over millions of years of evolution.
