My Notes:

Moon

  The moon is the only natural satellite of the Earth.

It is much smaller than the Earth and is held in orbit by the Earth's gravity, the moon is large enough that the effects of its gravitational pull on the Earth is seen in the form of tides.

Due to the rotation of its orbit, we only see one side of the moon from earth.

To see the other side (the dark side)of the moon you have to fly into space.

The moon has no atmosphere and its surface is full of peaks and craters, caused by asteroids.

There is even a crater filled with ice believed to be left over from a comet striking the surface of the moon a long time ago.

Despite its glowing appearance in the night sky, the moon does not emit its own light.

The light we see from the moon here on Earth is simply the light from the sun reflecting of the moon.
