MOON DAY


“Don't tell me the moon is shining;

show me the glint of light on broken glass.” ...

The moon is beautiful only when the mind seeks beauty and the heart is loving.


"Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.” As reported by scientist Robert A. Heinlein, again science and technology proved its way out when Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon on July 20, 1969. When Apollo 11 landed Commander Neil Armstrong and Lunar Module pilot Buzz Aldrin To the moon, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon and Aldrin joined 19 minutes later.To celebrate this greatest achievement of the technological age, the same date is celebrated on July 20 as National Moon Day.


Moon facts:

  • The Moon is the only permanent natural satellite of the Earth.

  • The Moon is the second densest satellite.

  • The Moon is a dusty ball of rock with a diameter of 3,476 km.

  • The moon takes 27.3 days to travel around the earth and complete its orbit.

  • The moon does not produce its own light, it reflects sunlight.

  • The moon has a gravity equal to one sixth of the earth's gravity.

  • There are approximately 190 moons orbiting planets and asteroids in our solar system, and Earth's moon is the fifth largest among them.

  • The moon has a very thin atmosphere called the exosphere and it is not breathable.

  • During a lunar eclipse, the Earth comes between the sun and the moon and thus prevents sunlight from falling on the moon.

  • Astronauts returned 842 pounds of lunar rock, sand, and dust to Earth during the Apollo missions from the Moon.

  • The ancient lunar crust is made up of light-colored rocks, anorthosite, which, when viewed from Earth, appears as bright parts of the moon.

  • The Earth and the Moon are gradually closed. Their rotation is synchronous and then we see only one side of the Moon.

Today not only celebrates the historical mission. It also celebrates future missions. Private expeditions take humans into space even more. Armstrong's "One Small Step to Man" inspired imaginations and also sparked innovation for future generations. Even future lunar missions are planned, including manned landings.
