Learn about the evolution of Earth's moon, from its initial formation to its current state, in this video from NASA. Real satellite imagery, as well as simulations, explore how the Moon has changed over time. The video looks at how the Moon likely formed about 4.5 billion years ago, how impacts from large objects formed maria, and how additional impacts from smaller objects continue to cause cratering.
