Experts on Moon

The Moon (in Greekσελήνη Selene, in LatinLuna) is Earth's only natural satellite.[e][9] It is one of the largest natural satellites in the Solar System, and, among planetary satellites, the largest relative to the size of the planet it orbits (its primary).[f][g] It is the second-densest satellite among those whose densities are known (after Jupiter's satellite Io).
