Answers to Questions Kids Ask! - Where "Why?" Turns to "Wow!"
Most people don’t think the moon is made of cheese, but sometimes it certainly looks like a wheel of cheese that’s blue with mold. It looks full of holes, like Swiss cheese, and it sometimes has a greenish/bluish color, like Gorgonzola cheese. The holes are actually craters caused by asteroids, which are big chunks of rock and ice that fly through space. The greenish/bluish color is caused by the Earth’s shadow across the moon’s surface.
