What is it like on the Moon?
When you look up at the Moon you can see light and dark areas.
There are many craters on the surface.
The craters were formed by meteorites crashing into it.
Rock samples that were brought back from the Apollo Missions
have proved it.
The lower areas, called lowlands or plains, were
formed from lava flows and consist of basalt rock.
From the Earth we always see the same side of the Moon.
The surface is gray and sandy.
Most of its surface is a mixture of fine dust and rock .
If one were to compare the size of Earth with the
size of the Moon, it would be like comparing a basketball
to a tennis ball.
A space craft called the Lunar Prospector
collected information about the Moon.
