FACTS ABOUT THE MOON

    So you want to learn more about your new Moon property? Well here are some important and intertesting facts about the Moon.

    • The Moon is a 4.6 billion year old ball of rock that circles around Earth once every 27 days, 7 hours and 43 minutes.
    • The moon's diameter is about 2,160 mi (3,476 km), somewhat more than 1/4 the earth's diameter. The moon has about 1/81 the mass of the earth and is 3/5 as dense.
    • On the Moon's surface, the force of gravitation is about 1/6 that on earth.
    • The surface temperature rises above 100°C (212°F) at lunar noon and sinks below -155°C (-247°F) at night.
    • The surface of the Moon is rocky and covered with craters. Mountains and hills surround the edges of large, flat plains. The lunar mountain ranges, with heights up to 25,000 ft (7,800 m), are comparable to the highest mountains on earth but in general are not very steep.
    • The Moon moves in a counterclockwise direction with an average orbital speed of about 0.6 miles/sec or 2,160 m.p.h. Because the lunar orbit is elliptical, the distance between the Earth and the Moon varies between about 227,000 miles (365,000 km) at perigee, and about 254,000 miles (409,000 km) at apogee, when the Moon is farthest from the Earth. The average distance is about 240,000 miles (385,000 km), or about 60 times the radius of the Earth itself.
    • The plane of the Moon's orbit is tilted, or inclined, at an angle of about 5° with respect to the ecliptic.
    • There is no air on the Moon, but it has recently been announced that water is definitely present - according to NASA between 10 and 300 million tons of water-ice is scattered inside the craters of the lunar poles.
    • There are dark areas on the Moon. These are really dry land but long ago astronomers thought they were filled with water, so they called them seas.
    • In 1969, the first astronauts landed on the Moon. This trip was followed by five more missions, the last in 1972.
