Moon is symbol of coolness, brightness besides presenting a lovely look.Moon as one is aware is the only natural satellite of the Earth that means it is the only heavenly body circling the Earth. But, as one recollects very well that thousands of man made objects called artificial satellites are circling the Earth today. The surface area of the moon is 14,658,000 square miles or 9.4 billion acres.

On November 14, 2008, Chandrayaan-1′s Moon Impact Probe had landed on the lunar surface, at 20:31 IST, after detaching from the Chandrayaan-1 In the said picture of moon,, the latest: Chandrayaan-1 had ound large quantities of water on the... surface of the moon.It is a proven fact that the moon rotates at sixteen kilometers per hour compared to the earth's rotation of one thousand six hundred kilometers per hour. The moon is about 1/4 the size of the Earth. Moon takes 27.3 days to circle the Earth once and it takes 27.3 days to spin around its own axis once. The moon does not produce any light; it merely reflects light from the sun. Only 59% of the moon's surface is visible from earth. Thus any thing said and done to moon is always a matter of joy.
