Moonball, also known as Lunaball a person name, is the only natural satellite of Earth-icon.png Earthball. Her surface area is 37,914,864 Km², and a radius of 1,737 Km. Thus, She 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 she was believed to be a home for the 6-icon.png 6balls, and is also considered as a god or goddess in many Pagan-icon.png old religions. She also is the first Moon going to Sun-icon.png Sol to Neptune-icon.png Neptuneball. Like all other planetballs other than Earth-icon.png Earthball, Moonball speaks broken English. She is also the symbol of a common religion, Islam-icon.png 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.She also contains significant amounts of helium-3 and valuable materials, which could make her a prime mining destination in the future, if fusion energy is developed. She 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.png Earthball, meaning that one side perpetually faces Earthball. She is also slowing down Earth-icon.png 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.png Earthball and another protoplanet that resided in one of Earth-icon.png Earthball's Lagrange points. The resulting material formed a temporary ring around Earth-icon.png 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 her own planetball, before she was captured by Earth-icon.png Earthball and thoroughly anchlussed.

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

SPQR-icon.png SPQRball called her Luna (same as Romania-icon.png Romaniaball and other countries that speak Romance languages). In 1969, some USA-icon.png 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.png Chinaball, Russia-icon.png Russiaball and the EU-icon.png EUball.

Who can into Moon?

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