~~The Moon travels around the Earth in 27 days, 7 hours, and 43 minutes. The average speed of the Moon's voyage is 2,3000 miles per hour

~~The highest point on the Moon is 5 miles high

~~The temperature on the Moon ranges from 212 degrees to -200 degrees, depending on which side you are on (100- -150C)

~~First known written account of the Moon--2283 BCE-- a lunar eclipse is recorded on a Mesopotamian scroll

~~On the island of Ascension, between Africa and South America, there is a bird that mates only on the full Moon, and returns to mate again ten full Moons later

~~The female biological cycle is of the same duration of the cycle of the Moon. The word "menstruation" comes from the Latin word "mensis" meaning "moon".
