Moon

The Moon is Earth's only natural satellite. Although not the largest natural satellite in the Solar System, it is, among the satellites of major planets, the largest relative to the size of the object it orbits. It is the second-densest satellite am... ong those whose densities are known.The Moon is in synchronous rotation with Earth, always showing the same face with its near side marked by dark volcanic maria that fill between the bright ancient crustal highlands and the prominent impact craters. It is the second-brightest regularly visible celestial object in Earth's sky, as measured by illuminance on the surface of Earth. Although it can appear a very bright white, its surface is actually dark, with a reflectance just slightly higher than that of worn asphalt. Its prominence in the sky and its regular cycle of phases have, since ancient times, made the Moon an important cultural influence on language, calendars, art, and mythology. The Moon's gravitational influence produces the ocean tides and the slight lengthening of the day   more

@tajshar2k They also didn't read the North America part when someone added Yugoslavia. When you add the option to create your own answers, the poll's qualifiers are meaningless. I fully expect "Glorious North Korea" to appear any day now.

@biggest_pro_going Or you let people make their own answers, someone made US, and people voted for it because it is a nation within the North American continent. If anything, they fixed your mistake.
