2)   The volume of the Earth's moon is the same as the volume of the Pacific Ocean.

3)   Only 59% of the moon's surface is visible from earth.

4)   The Moon has no global magnetic field. You cannot use a compass to find your direction.

5)   The moon is about 1/4 the size of the Earth. It has no atmosphere.
