Caption

Moon surface. Artwork of the Moon's surface with Earth visible in the sky. The Moon is Earth's only natural satellite. It is around 3840 kilometres in diameter, and orbits Earth at a mean distance of 384,403 kilometres. It rotates on its own axis in roughly the same time as it orbits the Earth, and thus only one side of the Moon is ever visible. The Moon is covered in millions of craters which range from centimetres to hundreds of kilometres across. These were largely caused by meteorite impacts early in the Moon's history, although some are of volcanic origin. The Moon is thought to have been formed after a large body collided with Earth over 4 billion years ago.
