Picture represents moon. We all knew moon. God’s greatest creation is the whole universe. Moon is considered as natural satellite for Earth. It is the only satellite that earth has. We are to be proud that we humans are the only livings foot stepped in Moon. Moon looks bright in night time and dull in day time. The light produced by the moon is not by its own. It gets from the sun in day time and gives light during night time. Moon will also visible in day time. If you watch the cloud you may notice the moon. During day time the sun light from the sun will be greater. Hence with our eyes it’s difficult to see the moon during day time. The age of moon according to our human conclusion is about 4.6 billion years old.

Comparing to Earth, the size of the Moon is small. The mass of the Moon is 8.10x1019 tons. It is less when compared to Earth. Hence the gravity at the lunar surface is one by sixth of that on earth. Hence we can’t able to stand on moon. The weight of any human body standing moon will be decreased to five by six. The Distance from the centre of the Earth to centre of the Moon is 384,467 kilometers.

The distance between the Moon and the Earth is increasing with slow growth. The Moon is moving away from Earth at a speed of about 3.8 cm per year. One day we all will not see the Moon. The Moon consists of many craters. The dark area on the Moon is called as maria.
