The moon began with an explosive collision, it was made when a rocked smashed on earth.

It is 4.5 billion years old. The moon can be delivered from the word ‘mona’which shares terms with the Latin word  ‘Metri’ which means to measure .

It is called the moon because it is used to measure months. The moon gets it light from the sun and that is why it appears brighter.

Humans cannot live in the moon since it has no atmosphere and there is no air for us to breathe in .

It is a myth that the moon affects your mood since there has been no evidence of any effect of the moon on human behavior.

If the moon is destroyed , there will be a much darker night sky which will be an advantage to astrologers and the sky will be comparatively brighter.

The moon rotates at its orbital motion , a special case called synchronous rotation hence does not rotate.

Without the moon , there would have been no life in earth, four billion years ago when life began ,the moon orbited closer to us than it was causing massive tides to ebb and flow every few hours . These tides cause dramatic fluctuations which could have driven the evolution of early DNA like binomolecules according to Richard Lathe .

The moon seems mysterious and it always come in different phases each and every night and that is beautiful since it seems like it is trying to reach out to the universe that different is key and not that bad after all, through whatever phase it keeps glowing and that is beautiful.
