    Moon-icon.png Fly me to the Moonball, also known as Lunaball, is the only natural satelliteball of Earth-icon.png Earthball. Its surface area is 37,914,864 Km² and has a radius of 1,737 Km. Thus, it is the largest satellite of the known solar system in relation to its parental planet; the fifth largest in the entire solar system. A few decades ago it was believed to be a home for the 6-icon.png 6balls and is also considered a god or goddess in many Pagan-icon.png old religions. It also is the first Moon going to Sun-icon.png Sol to Neptune-icon.png Neptuneball. Like all other planetballs other than Earth-icon.png Earthball, Moonball speaks broken English. It is also the symbol of a common religion, Islam-icon.png Islam, in which it's often represented as a crescent along with a star.

    Composition

    Moonball is composed mostly of silicates, with a possible iron-nickel core. It also contains significant amounts of helium-3 and valuable materials, which could make her a prime mining destination in the future, if fusion energy is developed. It is very active with volcanoes so it could be a prime mining destination in the future if volcanic energy is developed.

    Orbit - Rotation

    Moonball is tidally locked to Earth-icon.png Earthball, meaning that one side perpetually faces Earthball. It is also slowing down Earth-icon.png Earthball's rotation via tidal influence, to the point where, in a few billion years, Earthball will be tidally locked to it. 

    History

    Moonball is likely the result of a grazing collision between Earth-icon.png Earthball and another protoplanet that resided in one of Earth-icon.png Earthball's Lagrange points. The resulting material formed a temporary ring around Earth-icon.png Earthball. However, since much of the material was outside the Roche limit, it began to clump together into two moons. Moonball was the largest, and the smaller one was located at Lunaball's L2 Lagrange point. However, tidal forces eventually caused the second moon to collide with Moonball's far side as if to echo the collision that created the two. Another theory states that Lunaball was once its own planetball, before it was captured by Earth-icon.png Earthball and thoroughly anchlussed.

    Moon-icon.png Moonball is the most visible at night time, being the second brightest object in from the Earth-icon.png Earthball, behind only the Sun-icon.png Sun, but ahead of Venus-icon.png Venus. It can also be seen during the day (sometimes).

    SPQR-icon.png SPQRball called it Luna (same as Romania-icon.png Romaniaball and other countries that speak Romance languages). In 1969, some USA-icon.png USAballs went on it. Now USAball want to come back to the Moon by building a permanent base here competing in this matter with China-icon.png Chinaball, Russia-icon.png Russiaball and the EU-icon.png EUball.

    Who can into Moon?

    • Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball – First spacecraft and failed attempt to Moon landing.
    • USA-icon.png USAball – Probes and Moon landings in 1969-1972, now plans to return.
    • EU-icon.png EUball – Orbiter and satelite via ESAball and Luxembourg-icon.png Luxembourgball.
    • Japan-icon.png Japanball – Few probes, the third nation and first outside the USSRball and USAball.
    • South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball – Plans to launch lunar orbiter in 2022.
    • China-icon.png Chinaball – Many lunar missions and first landing in far side of the Moon.
    • India-icon.png Indiaball – Discovery of lunar water via Chandrayann-1, the Chandryann-2 is under way.

    How to draw

    A real-life photo of the Moon for reference

    Draw Moonball is almost very simple:

    1. Color the basic circle shape of light gray
    2. Add some circles of this darker grey
    3. Draw the eyes and you've finished.
