Is it OK to add some categories, e.g. selenology?

Please do. This one was still sitting in uncategorized because I drew a blank trying to think of how to categorize it, unlike the map pages which are presently impossible to edit because of the <DIV> SPAM filter's aggressiveness. -- Strangelv 13:17, 11 February 2007 (PST)

Capitalization of Moon

It is not clear to me that moon ought to be capitalized, except in titles of articles and sections. In Shakespeare moon was not capitalized. Part of Hecate's speech in MacBeth Act III Scene V is: "Great business must be wrought ere noon Upon the corner of the moon..." I think people just started capitalizing moon as a way to express their dislike with using Luna a proper noun for Earth's moon. Moon should no more be capitalized than sky. We have Earth's sky and Mars' sky and no proper name for either one. That is how it should be for moons. As Mars' moons are named Phobos and Deimos, Earth's moon should be named Luna.--Farred 21:18, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

In Spanish where the common name for moon is luna (I think), the proper name for the Earth's moon could be Moon. --Farred 01:43, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
