Fast Facts- The moon has lunar phases (new moon, waxing crescent, 1st quarter and so on...)- The moon's gravity has a stabilizing effect on Earth. - The moon is creeping away from us at the rate of about 1.5 inches (4 cm) every year.

Here we go!

You know that big round bright thing in the sky at night? Well that's the moon and without it, we probably won't be here today. That's how important it is. "Luna" is Latin for moon but not many people use that word. We just call it the moon. Enough talking, here are some fascinating things about the moon.

Did you know that the moon has layers? Well apparently, it does. All planets have layers, including the sun.
