The Moon is the only natural satellite of Earth. The Moon always shows the same face to Earth. The side that never faces Earth is called the far side or the dark side. The dark side actually receives light but is called dark since it never shows itself to Earth. The darker areas are volcanic maria from ancient volcanic eruptions. There are far less maria on the far side of the moon than on the side that faces Earth. Also visible are the prominent impact craters. It is the brightest body in the sky, other than the Sun.
