    The moon was formed when a mars sized asteroid struck earth and the dust orbited around earth until it clumped together and formed moon. So i guess you could say there are thousands of debris around earth but only 1 moon

    One theory for the moons difference in crust  thickness of it's light and dark sides is that there were two moons in the same orbital path. Over time the trailing moon overtook and collided with the leading moon, pressing slowly enough to merge the two bodies but not exploding them into fragments.
