Earth's Moon

Meteorites and asteroids have bombarded the Moon for billions of years, leaving deep craters on its surface. Without the forces of weather to remove them, the craters act as a record of all of these impacts. Many of its craters and mountains can be seen with the naked eye! In fact, some people think that these features resemble a man's face. What do you see when you look at the Moon?
