Earth from moon

The Moon is a joke dimension that can be accessed by flying up to Y=700 in the Overworld.

The Moon has a weak gravitational pull. So weak, in fact, that at certain heights the player will be pulled back to Earth, "falling up", so to say. The player's oxygen also decreases on the Moon, though much slower that in water. Cheese, which makes up almost the entirety of the Moon, restores both hunger and oxygen, allowing the player to survive here.


The Moon can be accesed by flying up to Y=700 in the Overworld. Conversely, flying up to Y=700 in the Moon will bring the player back to the Overworld.

The Moon has only one biome, bearing the same name.

Naturally generated[]

"Naturally generated" includes blocks that are created through the world seed.


Same as naturally generated, but these blocks are created only with the "Generate Structures" option enabled.


Java Edition
23w13a_or_bAdded the moon dimension.


The Moon is an unsupported dimension due to being an April Fools' joke, and therefore such issues relating to them will not be fixed.




  • The moon being made up of cheese is a reference to the joke that the moon is made out of cheese.
