40 Cool Pictures of the MoonA stunning collection of cool pictures of the moon taken from around the world.

The Moon is Earth's only natural satellite and the fifth largest satellite in the Solar System. The average centre-to-centre distance from the Earth to the Moon is 384,403 kilometres (238,857 mi), about thirty times the diameter of the Earth.

The Moon makes a complete orbit around the Earth every 27.3 days and the periodic variations in the geometry of the Earth–Moon–Sun system are responsible for the phases of the moon, which repeat every 29.5 days.
