The Earth formed in the cloud of gas and dust around a small forming protostar (the Sun) which gradually cooled to where it is today. The Moon is thought to have been formed from the debris of a collision with another celestial body with Earth during primordial times, which, caught in the Earth's orbit, formed the Moon.
