Moonball, also known as Lunaball, is the only natural satellite of Earth-icon Earthball. His surface area is 10,917 km², and a radius of 1,738.1 km. Thus, He is the largest satellite of the known solar system in relation to its parental planet; the fifth largest in the entire solar system. Years ago he was believed to be a home for the 6-icon 6balls, and is also considered as a god or goddess in many Pagan-icon old religions. He also is the first Moon going to Sun-icon Sol to Neptune-icon Neptuneball. Like all other planetballs other than Earth-icon Earthball, Moonball speaks broken English. He is also the symbol of a common religion, Islam-icon Islam, in which it's oft represented as a crescent along with a star.

Composition

Lunaball is composed mostly out of silicates, with a possible iron-nickel core. He also contains significant amounts of helium-3 and valuable materials, which could make him a prime mining destination in the future, if fusion energy is developed. He is very active with volcanoes so he could be a prime mining destination in the future, if volcanic energy is developed.

Orbit - Rotation

Lunaball is tidally locked to Earth-icon Earthball, meaning that one side perpetually faces Earthball. He is also slowing down Earth-icon Earthball's rotation via tidal influence, to the point where, in a few billion years, Earthball will be tidally locked to him as well. 

History

Lunaball is likely the result of a grazing collision between Earth-icon Earthball and another protoplanet that resided in one of Earth-icon Earthball's Lagrange points. The resulting material formed a temporary ring around Earth-icon Earthball. However, since much of the material was outside the Roche limit, it began to clump together into two moons. Lunaball was the largest, and the smaller one was located at Lunaball's L2 Lagrange point. However, tidal forces eventually caused the second moon to collide with Lunaball's far side, as if to echo the collision that created the two. Another theory states that Lunaball was once his own planetball, before he was captured by Earth-icon Earthball and thoroughly anchlussed.

Moon-icon Moonball is the most visible in night time, being the second brightest object in from the Earth-icon Earthball, behind only the Sun-icon Sun, but ahead of Venus-icon Venus. He can also being seen in day (sometimes).

SPQR-icon SPQRball called him Luna (same as Romania-icon Romaniaball and other countries that speak Romance languages). In 1969, some USA-icon USAballs went on it. Now USAball want to come back to the Moon by building a permanent base here competing in this matter with China-icon Chinaball, Russia-icon Russiaball and the EU-icon EUball.

Who can into Moon?

  • Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball – first spacecraft and failed attempt to Moon landing.
  • USA-icon USAball – probes and Moon landings in 1969-1972, now plans to return.
  • EU-icon EUball – orbiter and satelite via ESAball and Luxembourg-icon Luxembourgball.
  • Japan-icon Japanball – few probes, the third nation and first outside the USSRball and USAball.
  • South Korea-icon South Koreaball – plans to launch lunar orbiter in 2020.
  • China-icon Chinaball – many lunar missions and first landing in far side of the Moon.
  • India-icon Indiaball – discovery of lunar water via Chandrayann-1, the Chandryann-2 is under way.
  • Israel-icon Israelcube – first private lander, but failed to land in the Moon.

How to draw

Draw Moonball is almost very simple:

  1. Color the basic circle shape of light gray
  2. Add some circles of this darker grey
  3. Draw the eyes and you've finished.
