- The large amount of deposits predominantly covering the south-western floor of Ley is believed to be that of its own rim material having been dynamically shifted, or blasted off, by the nearby impact event of crater Von Neumann to its southwest. This 'clump' of material must also include deposits from Von Neumann itself, and the whole mix must be a geologist's dream. - JohnMoore2

Willy Ley in the Sourcebook Project (William R. Corliss)
- In Lightning, Auroras, Nocturnal Lights, and related luminous phenomena (1982) :
- GLB1-R27: On Earth and in the Sky (Willy Ley, Ace Books, New York, 1957). Note: this (very interesting) sourcebook's chapter (GLB1) is a cornucopia of reports of "ordinary" Ball-Lightning (quite strange apparitions of glowing and exploding orbs of light). Willy Ley must have been an aficionado of Ball-Lightning related phenomena. - DannyCaes Apr 8, 2015
