Luna is the moon of Earth. Luna glows by light it reflects from Sol and is frequently the brightest object in the night sky of Earth. It orbits the Earth about once a month from about 1 light second away. Luna's diameter is about 1/4 that of the Earth, and from the Earth's surface appears to have almost exactly the same angular size as Sol.

Evidence indicates that the moon formed from a colossal impact on the Earth about 4.5 billion years ago, and therefore has a similar composition to the Earth.

A symbol in famous human love songs, movies, poems, and folklore, many myths about the moon date back to ancient human history.

Humans walked on the Moon for the first time in the human year 1969. Since then, the body has seen extensive colonization efforts.
