The Moon rising over San Fierro.

Full Moon over Chinatown, San Fierro

The Moon is Earth's only natural satellite and is the sixth largest natural satellite in the Solar System.

It is featured in every third person game in the series.


The Moon first appeared in GTA III and has been in every GTA game since then. It is assumed that the Moon revolves around Earth, like in real life. However, the moon is never referred to as doing so in any game, and it shows as a static image in all games since GTA III, fading into view at dusk and disappearing in the same way in the morning.

It's impossible to get to the Moon, because it's only an image. The moon is a helpful tool to navigate, as it gives some light to dark rural areas such as Back O' Beyond in San Andreas.

In the 3D Universe games, shooting the moon with a Sniper Rifle will cause it to change size.



  • It should be noted the GTA IV version of the moon is not as detailed and bright as in past games.
