Moon crater named after pop king -- MJ

Late King of Pop Michael Jackson, whose moonwalk was a dancing phenomenon in itself, has got the ultimate tribute, for a crater on the Moon has now been named after him.

In what could be called as a heavenly tribute, the Lunar Republic Society has said that the Moonwalker has made his mark on the moon.

The news came as the singer's family, friends, and fans celebrated his life at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on July 7, reports a newspaper.

The crater, previously named Posidonius J, is located in the Moon's Lake of Dreams, and is close to a 1,200-acre parcel purchased by Michael Jackson.

The 'Thriller' hit-maker passed away last month, after suffering a cardiac arrest at his Los Angeles home.
