5 popular myths about the Moon you probably believe
Our natural satellite plays an important part in the lives of all humans - we believe that the Moon has a certain influence on our mood, health and even destiny. But some things about the Moon are still little-known and, of course, there are some myths to be exploded...
The side of the Moon which is turned away from us receives as much sunlight as the visible part.
In fact, the Moon has the form of a ball which is slightly flattened.
The moon doesn't make its own light, and the white color is just the result of very bright sunlight reflected on its surface. The real color of the Moon is dark gray, like asphalt.
Some people believe that objects "float up" on the Moon. That's wrong: the Moon has its gravity, it's just 6 times weaker than that of the Earth.
Anyway, the reasons of such an impressive illusion are still not explained.
