Caption

Artwork representing the far side of the Moon. The only natural satellite of the Earth has a diameter of 3476km and lies at a mean distance of 384,000km from the Earth. The Moon's rotation period around the Earth is equal to its period of revolution and its value is 27.3 days. For this reason the Moon keeps the same face turned towards the Earth. The far side is characterised by a larger number of craters, caused by the impacts of falling meteoroids, than the visible side.
