A moon (also known as a natural satellite) was an astronomical object found in orbit around a planet.

Some moons, like Voga, were planetoids brought into orbit around a planet by the planet's gravity, while others were the result of a collision between objects during the formation of a solar system. (TV: Revenge of the Cybermen)

Other moons[]

(TV: A Christmas Carol)
