Facts About The Moon

Facts About The Moon Surface The surface of the moon has many different characteristics. On the moon, there are light and dark areas. The moon also has deep craters, plains and high mountains. It has no air or weather, which results in no animals, plants, or water. The lack of air also causes the moon's sky to be black. Movement Does the moon orbit the earth, or does the earth orbit the moon? The moon orbits the earth, which is why we have night and day. It takes 30 days for the moon to travel all the way around the earth. When the moon orbits around earth, it also spins around! The moon is the world's only natural satellite. There are other satellites in space, but those are man made. Size and ShapeHow big is the moon, you ask? The moon is definitely smaller than Earth. In fact, the earth's width is four times the size of the moon! If that doesn't impress you, try this: the sun's width is 400 times the size of the moon! The moon is closer to us than the sun. Also, the moon is shaped like a sphere.
