Description

The Moon is the natural satellite of the Earth. It is thought that the Moon has formed about 4.5 billion years ago, soon after the formation of the Earth. The exact story of its formation still remains a mystery, although there are several hypotheses. The Moon is the second-brightest celestial object visible to the human’s eyes. But, the Moon itself is not bright, but a dark object, which receives its shine from the reflection of the Sun. 
The interest in the Moon has its origin in the ancient times with important cultural influence on the calendars, art, mythology, etc. 
The importance of the Moon to the Earth lies in the gravitational influence, which is responsible for the ocean tides and the minor lengthening of the day.
One of the most interesting things about the Moon is its face, which looks like a real human face. The existence of this face has been and still is an inspiration for writing stories and poems.
In this book you will find a detailed description of the Moon, including the: plains, craters, mountain rings, valleys, the temperature on the surface and its brightness, description of the four quadrants and a map of the Moon.
The intention of this book is to satisfy the curious people, interested in astronomy and give detailed information to those who often use their telescopes to analyse its surface.
