The Moon, Earth's only natural satellite, is the fifth largest moon in our solar system. The surface of the moon features impact craters caused by comets and asteroids colliding with the surface. Here are some fun facts about the moon:
-It takes about 27.3 days for the moon to orbit Earth.
-The moon rises in the east and sets in the west.
-The moon moves about 12 degrees toward the east each day.
-The moon is about 250,000 miles from Earth – if you were to travel by car it would take 130 days to reach the moon!
