How Many Moons does each planet have?
Let’s go ask each one and we’ll see How many moons does Mercury have?
Do you have any moons for us to meet? I’m Mercury and I don’t have a moon
I’m too close to the Sun’s gravity My gravitational pull isn’t strong enough
The Sun would pull any moons away from me . Sorry! How Many moons do Venus and Earth have? I am Venus and I also have no moons
It could be due to the Sun’s gravity Or maybe I had a moon a long time ago,
That’s orbit decayed and it crashed right into me (Ouch!) I am the Earth and I have just one moon
Look up into the sky and you will see Luna is her name and she’s my best friend

I’m heavily covered in craters which shows my history Hello!
