    LOL! Actually it is called a moonquake. They are usually less severe and less frequent. Moonquakes are usually caused by the tidal waves on earth, so in essence they are effected by the Earth.

    Thank you for your prompt and enlightening response, you seem to be an expert on this :-) ...
    Can I ask you --------  if two people are having a nice time on the moon, what do they say ... "the earth moved for me," or "the moon moved for me?"
