    I don't know the answer to any of them (except the aisle, is that not down the centre of the nave?). The first one depends on what the word "moon" means. Obviously there is the large, well-known natural satellite, but there could be other, smaller, natural objects in orbit around the Earth. Then there are the artificial satellites.

    But overall, I don't know the answers to those questions.

    There are five moons - the second being "Cruithne"

    I bet you thought I'd say one - at a push two...

    Cruithne is not a satellite of the Earth though.

    The universe is beige - or 'cosmic latte' as some astronomers have dubbed it.

    Don't believe everything you read in the Wiki... But it is indeed correct, to an some extent. However, Cruithne is an Irregular moon in that it will be affected by the orbit of the Earth and exchange orbital energy in a way to alter its orbit.

    The "aisles" are the passages down the side of a church, usually seperated by collumns, to make the interior of the church look bigger...

    It's usually the guests that walk down the aisle at a wedding, not the happy couple...
