This underlines the point that, if the Moon were suddenly provided with atmosphere and oceans, they would last millions of years. SF talks of terraforming places like Mars and even Venus, but misses our nearest neighbour!

A few years of cometary bombardment, some blue-green algae and another continent's worth of land.

Mine's the one with the attached wings - because on a terraformed Moon, human-powered flight would be easy!
