Moon Birth in Baby Earth

Our moon, whose surface is still covered with lava, covers a huge area in the sky due to its proximity, illuminating our planet almost at night like daytime. Considering that the Earth was rotating much faster than it is now, and a Earth day is only 5 hours, it would not be wrong to say that the Moon was never experienced at night with its illumination.
In this period, our Earth, like the newly formed Moon, was covered with lava and had an atmosphere of warm, poisonous gases. The surface of this boiling planet, where water in liquid form is almost absent, will cool with its fresh satellite over time and will reach the water it has today with comets that last millions of years…

During the comet and meteorite rains, of course, the Moon also had plenty of water. However, due to its low mass, it could not maintain its atmosphere, nor its water on its surface. Today, except for the ice sheets in the deep crater bottoms that have no sunlight, all the water it has evaporated into space.

At the end of the billions of years that passed, the Moon fell as far as 380 thousand kilometers away from the Earth as a result of the gravitational war with the Earth and continues to move away. Our satellite, which is about 3.8 cm a year, will be twice as far away from us as 3 billion years later, considering that the rate of departure will gradually increase in the future.
