       For a long time, the Moon is recognized as an excellent celestial body for telescopes because it is relatively close.Some craters near the poles are permanently located in the dark ,in very cold regions.
The most popular name for the Earth's natural satellite is "Moon".The Moon derived from "moone"(around 1380), who developed from "mone"(1135), and derives from the old "mōna" in English (dating to before 725).

 The mainly adjective on our natural satellite, is "Luna" in Latin. A less common adjective is "selenar", derived from ancient Greek Selene (Σελήνη), from which the prefix "Seleno" (as in selenography) is derived.
 Major geologic process that affected the Moon's surface are impact craters formed when asteroids and comets have collided with the lunar surface. It is estimated that about 300,000 craters larger than 1 km exists on the near side of the Moon only. Some of them have the names of scientists, artists and explorers.
