    dark volcanic maria that fill between the bright ancient crustal highlands and the prominent impact craters It is the most luminous object in the sky after the Sun Although it appears a very bright white its surface is actually dark with a reflectance just slightly higher than that of worn asphalt Its prominence in the sky and its regular cycle of phases have since ancient times made the Moon an important cultural influence on language calendars art and mythology The Moon s gravitational influence produces the ocean tides and the slight lengthening of the day The Moon s current orbital distance is about thirty times the diameter of Earth causing it to have an apparent size in the sky almost the same as that of the Sun This allows the Moon to cover the Sun nearly precisely in total solar eclipse This matching of apparent visual size is a coincidence The Moon s linear distance from Earth is currently increasing at a rate of 3 82 0 07 cm per year but this rate is not constant The Moon is thought to have formed nearly 4 5 billion years ago not long after Earth Although there have been several hypotheses for its origin in the past the current most widely accepted explanation is that the Moon formed from the debris left over after a giant impact between Earth and a Mars sized body The Moon is the only celestial body other than Earth on which humans have currently set foot The Soviet Union s Luna programme was the first to reach the Moon with unmanned spacecraft in 1959 the United States NASA Apollo program achieved the only manned missions to date beginning with the first manned lunar orbiting mission by Apollo 8 in 1968 and six manned lunar landings between
