 //The Moon is exceptionally large relative to the Earth: a quarter the diameter of the planet and 1/81 its mass. It is the largest moon in the solar system relative to the size of its planet (although Charon is larger relative to the dwarf planet Pluto). The Moon's surface area is less than one-tenth that of the Earth; about a quarter of the Earth's land area. However, the Earth and Moon are still considered a planet–satellite system, rather than a double-planet system, as their barycentre, the common centre of mass, is located about 1,700 km (about a quarter of the Earth's radius) beneath the surface of the Earth.// //The Moon is exceptionally large relative to the Earth: a quarter the diameter of the planet and 1/81 its mass.
