What would Earth be like with no moon? EarthSky 11/30/16 Earth without its moon would be a very different world indeed. No eclipses. Smaller tides. But the biggest change would be in the length of Earth’s day-moons of the solar system, with the Earth for scale- the moon is pretty big. But Pluto and its moon are even closer in size via NASA.
Psalm 8: "Oh Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth... when I look at the heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him?"

The universe is bigger than we thought. Much bigger! — It turns out, what we call the observable universe — the part visible within our cosmological horizon, AKA "the final frontier" — has at least 10 times more galaxies than the mid 1990s Hubble Deep Field images count of about 100 to 200 billion.
“The reappearance of the crescent moon after the new moon; the return of the Sun after a total eclipse, the rising of the Sun in the morning after its troublesome absence at night were noted by people around the world; these phenomena spoke to our ancestors of the possibility of surviving death. Up there in the skies was also a metaphor of immortality.” ~~~ Carl Sagan
