Q: (L) When and how did planet earth acquire its moon?
A: Was caused by the regular passage of a large comet cluster which caused a gravitational disruption allowing a large chunk of the original earth's surface, which was somewhat less solid at that point in space/time, to break away from the main body and assume a locked in orbit around the main body.
Q: (L) When did this happen?
A: This occurred approximately 3 billion years ago.

On the top right corner, type "moon" on the search function (choosing the "on this board" option in the scroll-down menu), and you will see all the times when the word "moon" appears in a session. Of course, many of them may not be relevant to your search, but you can see from there which ones interest you.
Take a virtual tour of the Moon in all-new 4K resolution, thanks to data provided by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft. As the visualization moves around the near side, far side north and south poles, we highlight interesting features, sites, and information gathered on the lunar terrain.
A space enthusiast who was recently filming the moon was left baffled when three mystery objects floated past it. He posted the video on YouTube, asking viewers a simple question – “WTF?”
The video begins with the camera focused on the moon and its signature craters. However, at the 1:18 mark, three strange objects can be seen dancing past the moon.
It happens quickly, and they rapidly disappear out of frame. But their appearance was enough to leave the man intrigued and confused. So confused that he titled his video ‘WTF did I capture passing the moon?’
He believes it was most likely helium balloons that someone released, but admits the theory cannot be confirmed. Others commented that they agreed with the balloon logic, while some suggested they could have been meteorites. One person nonchalantly responded with “Oh you know, just aliens probably.”
The video was filmed during the half moon on April 22, and was posted by YouTube user Don’t Stop Motion.
