Earth has one natural satellite and that is the Moon. It is the second largest object in the night sky from Earth's perspective, and it would have been noticeable to our ancestors of ancient times, and it has always held a place in the myths and legends of every culture.
It is the second brightest object in the sky after the Sun. As it orbits around the Earth once per month, the angle between the Earth, the Moon and the Sun changes; we see this as the cycle of the Moon's phases. Because it takes 27.3 days both to rotate on its axis and to orbit our planet, it always shows us the same face. How much of it we see depends on its position in relation to Earth and the Sun.
Though a satellite of our planet, it is bigger than Pluto. Some scientists think of it as a planet, though that viewpoint has never caught on officially. There are various theories about how it was created, but recent evidence indicates it formed when a huge collision tore a chunk of the Earth away.
Because of a loss of orbital energy to gravity from the Earth, the Moon is very gradually moving away from the planet. In the very early history of the planet, it looked about 3 times larger in apparent size in the sky, because it was closer to it.
It is the only celestial body other than our planet on which humans have set foot. Without an atmosphere, there is no wind or water erosion. Its surface is about the same now as it was 3 billion years ago. The astronauts' footprints remain unchanged on its surface, and, they should last at least 10 million years.
