4 Features of the Moon Galileo Galilei (1609) first to observe moon through telescope

5 Features of the Moon Galileo Galilei (1609) first to observe moon through telescope He observed large, flat, dark areas and called them Maria (singular mare) – Latin for “sea”

6 Features of the Moon Galileo Galilei (1609) first to observe moon through telescope He observed large, flat, dark areas and called them Maria (singular mare) – Latin for “sea” He observed light areas that were mountainous and called them highlands

7 Features of the Moon Craters – circular features ranging from microscopic to hundreds of kilometers across Most due to impacts of material from space, some result from volcanic activity Most are on “far side” of moon

8 Features of the Moon Rilles – long valley on moon’s surface Could be due to past volcanic activty Hadley Rille visited by Apollo astronauts

9 Movement of the Moon The moon orbits the Earth

10 Movement of the Moon The moon orbits the Earth Perigee – closest to Earth Apogee – farthest from Earth
