Luna (simply called "'the 'moon" by people living on Earth) is the sole natural satellite of Earth.

A Trip to the MoonEdit
A group of Human scientists from The Gun Club invented a type of giant gun that would fire a projectile to the moon. The bullet was hollowed and made into a spacecraft, and launched to the moon in 1902. This was the first Human landing on Luna. Its small crew of scientists crash-landed on the moon and explored its surface, only to encounter the Selenites and come into conflict with them. However, they were able to kill the Selenite king and escape.
A later human space mission in 1993 discovered the dumpster containing Rita Repulsa and accidentally released her. The astronauts who released her lost their lives, and Rita set up a fortress on the moon. This served as her base of operations, from which she would launch attacks against the Earth.
The Machine Empire would later occupy Rita's base on the moon; they used the base to attack the earth as well.
The Selenites are native to the moon. They are an insect-like, humanoid species with a moderately advanced civilization. They're ruled by a monarchy.
They were hostile to humans upon first contact, but the Human explorers were able to kill their king.
Additionally, The Man in the Moon is a massive presence in the moon, sometimes visible all the way from the earth.
