The Moon’s size varies depends upon its position, whether it is at perigee or apogee.  Generally the Moon is 14% bigger in its size, when it is at its perigee.

The Moon can influence Earth by gravity.  When the Moon is at its perigee, the weather and tides tend to be unstable  and create larger tides due to gravitational pull and when the Moon is at its apogee, the weather and tides tend to be more predictable.

The Moon’s core is light,  it’s core is 2-4% of its mass, whereas Earth’s core is about 30% of its mass

Temperatures on the Moon vary drastically, as there is no atmosphere on the Moon.  The temperature ranges from temperatures -200°F to more than 200 °F.

Scientists believe that, Moon quakes originate below the Moon’s surface due to the Earth’s gravitational pull.

Do you know that Earth’s rotation has slowed down due to the Moon’s gravity, long ago – days were much shorter and rotation was faster.

From Earth, both the Sun and the Moon look about same size, this is because, the Moon is 400 times smaller than the Sun, but also 400 times closer to Earth

The Moon’s entire surface is covered with a layer of crushed and powdered rocks called regolith, which is due to the bombardment in space of many tiny micrometeorites.

An astronaut’s footprint could last for millions of years, as there is no wind or water on the surface of the Moon.

A lunar eclipse, lasts longer than a solar eclipse because Earth’s shadow is so much longer. In lunar eclipse, earth passes between Sun and the Moon.

There is no twilight before nightfall, because on the Moon there is no atmosphere.

In ancient days,during solar eclipses, Chinese used to make as much noise as possible, as they thought that Sun was swallowed by enormous dragon and making such sounds would scare that drago

About 5,000 years old, a map was carved into a rock in a prehistoric tomb at Knowth, County Meath, Ireland, which is the oldest known map of the Moon. Before this, the oldest known lunar map was drawn by Leonardo da Vinci.

Soviet space probe Luna 2 was the first probe to reach the Moon, in 1959, which crash-landed on the Moon. The first probe, missed the Moon by 3,000 miles, which is Luna 1.

The Soviet Luna 9 was the first soft landing probe on the lunar surface. Earlier, astronomers were worried, that probes might sink into the lunar surface.

Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the Moon on July 20, 1969. Eugene Cernan was the last person to stand on moon’s surface in 1972.
