Luna, often referred to as the Moon, is the only natural satellite of Earth.


Human Colonization[]

Humans began settling Luna in 2080.[1] Due to its still barren face, one can assume it has not been terraformed, probably a result of Luna's low gravity and lack of atmosphere. Instead, the habitats on Luna are sealed from vacuum and interconnected by tubes.

Prior to the Interplanetary War, Koslovic ideology spread to rural areas on Luna.[2]

Interplanetary War[]

Main article: Interplanetary War

In 2167, Vladimir Koslov and his family were killed in a bombing at Lake Autolycus.[3]

Pre-Covenant War[]

The Mare Nubium Academy, was located here.[4] Luna also possesses a number of orbital defense stations called skyhooks.

Human-Covenant War[]

Main article: Human-Covenant war

During the Battle of Earth, the skyhook complexes came under attack and were defended by native ONI personnel.[5]

Post-War Era[]

Luna was the home station for the ONI ship UNSC Rubicon that had the task of investigating the remains of Installation 00.[6]


Corporations on Planet[]


By at least 2492, there was a country on Luna known as the Luna Confederated States, the State of Mare Nubium being one of the said states.[4]

  • Luna is the Latin word for Moon, and many Latin-based languages share the word.
  • In many Earth-based maps in the Halo games, the Moon often appears to be larger than in real life.
  • The Moon would be roughly 2,059.6 centimetres (67.57 ft) further from the Earth in 2552 than in 2010 due to tidal acceleration forces.
  • In the Halo: Reach live-action short Spaceport, Luna is a destination listed at the Manassas Spaceport.
  • In Halo 3 on Standoff you can see someone's face on the moon.
  • While its surface is devoid of obvious signs of habitation as seen in the beginning of Halo 2, at the end of Halo 4 the lights of large cities and settlements can be seen.
  • The settlements on Luna likely possess artificial gravity systems. This would be essential for humans to healthily develop on the moon.
