Study Notes

  • The moon is a large ball of stone orbiting around Earth, one-fourth the size of our planet, covered with dust and rocks creating visible craters from Earth.
  • Despite appearing white from Earth, the moon is actually gray and reflects sunlight to shine at night.
  • The moon takes around 28 days to orbit Earth, with no air making life unlikely there, and its light is a reflection of the sun's light.
  • Eclipses occur when the moon moves in front of the sun, briefly blocking sunlight and cooling the Earth, causing animals to think it's night and sleep.
  • Twelve astronauts, including the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong, have walked on the moon wearing special suits for temperature control and oxygen due to the lack of air.

Test your knowledge on the moon, its characteristics, orbit, lunar surface, and astronaut missions. Learn about moon's appearance, orbit, reflection of sunlight, eclipses, and astronaut experiences.
