Transcript of Moon

How big is the moon? The moon is 3,474 kilometers in diameter which is 27% of the diameter of the earth which is 12,756 kilometers in diameter. Our moon is also the 5th biggest moon in our solar system. What Shape Is The Moon? It's spherical but it sometimes looks different, like a C. The reason for this is because you can't see anything without light reflecting off of objects nearby and reflecting into your pupil. The moon reflects the light from the sun so that we can see it, but depending on the moon's position, makes it look different. How Far Away Is The Moon? It's normally about 384,400 kilometers from earth, which is also 30 earths away! How Does The Moon Affect The Earth? The most obvious is the tides at the beach, without the moon there would be no tides or waves. Another is werewolves, without the moon there would be no werewolves. Also, the earth spins like a spinning top at about 23 degrees and changes slowly as the seasons do, if the moon wasn't there to stabilize it, the seasons would change alot quicker and would probably be unsuitable for life. Also a change in day length would occur and would make the days shorter. The First Moon Landing? The first launch to the moon happened at 9:32 a.m, July 16, 1969. The Apollo 11 was launched into the earths gravitational orbit from Cape Kennedy, U.S.A. After 1.5 orbits of the earth, the Apollo 11 gave itself a boost and launches forward to the moon. After three days aboard the Apollo 11, they went behind the moon. At 1:28 p.m, on the 20th of July, the lunar module separated from the rocket and landed on the moon. The First Moon Landing? How Was The Moon Formed? It was formed 4.5 billion years ago when there were 20 planets in our solar system instead of 9. Thea, one of the planets crashed into Earth and formed the moon. Are there signs of alien life on the moon? Not so far, there are signs of water on the moon, but no alien life. If there are, they’re so small that no-one has noticed them. Is the moon alive? There's no real proof that the moon can be scientifically alive.
