Still image from Moon: Our Partner In Space & Jaw Drop: Eclipses & Aurorae

Earth's moon was probably formed when a body the size of Mars collided twice with the planet. The moon is steadily receding into space; eventually, due to the loss of this lunar regulator, Earth will start to wobble, creating climatic chaos. Eclipses can be also seen often when the sun obscures the moon or vice versa. Another light show, the Aurora, occurs when electrified particles from the solar wind interact with Earth's upper atmosphere and is visible particularly in the Polar Regions.
