Know more about Moon

Saturday - October 6, 2018 3:41 pm , Category : Fun Facts

WTN- Moons  are natural satellites, celestial bodies that orbit other bodies such as planets or larger asteroids that are large enough to have their own gravitational pull. Planets acquire moons in a number of ways .satellites that orbit close by, near a planet’s equatorial  plane and in the  same direction –such as Jupiter’s moons-were likely created at the same time as the planet.

Moon in retrograde to a planet appear to have formed separately and been captured by the planet’s gravity. Neptune’s Triton is one such moon. Moons can also came into being when large objects collide with planets ,chipping off matter that becomes an orbiting body, Earth’s moon for example , may the planets and dwarf planets except Mercury, Venus, Mars, Ceres and Makemake have moons. Altogether our solar system contains at least 146 moons. Until the invention of the telescope , only Earth’s moon was visible
Moons seem the most promising places to look for evidence of extra terrestrial life forms .A few moons, such as Neptune’s Triton and Jupiter’s lo, have atmospheres and other notable features. Triton has polar icecaps and geysers, lo has huge volcanic eruptions. Jupiter’s moon Europa and Saturn’s  moon Titan may be the only bodies in the solar system apart from Earth to have liquid water.
