Random information on the term “MOON”:
A natural satellite, or moon, is, in the most common usage, an astronomical body that orbits a planet or minor planet (or sometimes another small Solar System body).
In the Solar System, there are six planetary satellite systems containing 205 known natural satellites. Four IAU-listed dwarf planets are also known to have natural satellites: Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris. As of September 2018[update], there are 334 other minor planets known to have moons.
The Earth–Moon system is unique among planetary systems in that the ratio of the diameter of the Moon to the diameter of Earth is much greater than that of any other natural-satellite–planet ratio in the Solar System. At 3,474 km (2,158 miles) across, the Moon is 0.273 times the diameter of Earth. This is five times greater than the next largest moon-to-planet diameter ratio (with Neptune’s largest moon at 0.055, Saturn’s at 0.044, Jupiter’s at 0.038 and Uranus’ as 0.031). For the category of planetoids, among the five that are known in the Solar System, Charon has the largest ratio, being half (0.52) the diameter of Pluto.
