The Moon, sometimes called Luna, is what people generally say when talking about Earth’s largest satellite. It can be seen from Earth and is about quarter the size of the earth, but because it is far away it looks very small. The gravity on the moon is one-sixth of the Earth’s gravity. That means that something will be six times lighter on the Moon than on Earth. The Moon is a rocky and dusty place. The Moon drifts away from Earth at the rate of four centimeters per year.

- The moon is 4.5 billion years old.
- The surface of the moon is made up of craters, mountains, plains and valleys.
- There is no atmosphere on the moon, which means there is no air to breathe.
