The moon Yavin 4 orbits the gas giant Yavin

A moon was a celestial body that circled another celestial body, usually a planet. A planet could have several moons orbiting it, as exemplified by Hoth[1] or Iego, which was nicknamed the "Planet of a Thousand Moons."[2] It was also possible for a moon to have moons of its own, such as in the case of Ajan Kloss.[3] Like planets, moons came in a variety of terrains, from barren rock[4] to lush forests,[5] and were sometimes referred to as "worlds."[6][7]

Some moons were habitable, such as the moons of Naboo, which at one point hosted spice mines.[8] The Rebel Alliance maintained a base on the fourth moon of the gas giant Yavin.[9] The Forest Moon of Endor and the space around it were the site of a decisive battle between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance.[10]
