Astronomical Moon - Poem by Spock the Vegan

The Moon is a large natural satellite
in the Solar System. It's one awesome sight
you can peep at through a telescope at night.
Use a moon filter or it may be too bright.

The phases of the Moon are quite the result
of its concentric orbit and the occult
of the vision of the light and the dark side
as seen from the Earth from the open-eyed.

The Moon has a feature called the Straight Wall.
You can't look over it unless you're very tall.
According to my memory, unless it's wrong,
it's one thousand feet high and sixty miles long.

Imagine flying over Tranquility Sea.
When I saw it, it looked extremely dry to me.
To mountains and some craters you can say "ahoy",
and to the Lake of Sorrow and the Lake of Joy.

    The Moon's gravitational influence produces the ocean tides. The Moon's linear distance from Earth is currently increasing at a rate of about 1.5 inches per year. (Report) Reply

    Very educational. You have probably forgotten more about the moon than I will ever know. (Report) Reply

    I thank you and the others for your support. You may not realize that I do research for many of my poems. I isn't all from memory. It's nice to have Wikepedia and other resources on line.
