The Moonwatch

The Moon is an astronomical object and the Earth’s natural satellite.

The Moon’s atmosphere is considered to be surrounded by vacuum.

The Moon has been or has not been visited by humans.

The most obvious manifestation of the influence of the Moon on our planet are the ocean tides.

During many years, mental diseases and epilepsy were thought to be caused by the Moon, hence the word “lunatic”(derived from Luna, the Moon, in Latin), meaning mentally ill, mad, foolish as well as lunar effect:  real or imaginary influence of the Moon and moonlight on living things on the Earth.
