For most people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us. ~Richard H. Baker And that Christ is the Creator of all things.
There are a lot of things that we do know about the moon. It's roughly 1/6 the size of the planet earth. Scientists say that it is 4.6 billion years old and that its approximately 238.000 miles from the planet Earth. It was only recently discovered that there is some water on the moon trapped in ice at the poles. Men from the USA have walked six times on the lunar surface.
