In an out-of-the-world tribute to the 'King of Pop' the Lunar Republic Society named the crater after Jackson, contactmusic reported.

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

Jackson, died last month at the age of 50 after a suspected cardiac arrest. His fans and family members bid their final farewell to the pop legend in a star-studded public memorial yesterday.
