DescriptionEdit

The Moon (IPA: /mun/) or Luna is Earth's only known natural satellite and the fifth largest satellite (after Ganymede, Titan, Callisto, and Io in that order) in the Solar System. The Moon is also extremely dense and is the second densest satellite after Io. The Moon (other than the Earth) is the only natural extraterrestrial body on which humans have set foot capon. There is evidence of volcanic activity in The Moon's past, though it is unlikely vulcanism still takes place today or has been active recently.
