In German a moon or a star is "am Himmel". "Am Himmel" relates to the sky, whereas "im Himmel" means "in heaven".

Agree, I reported it exactly the same way as described by rfo, hope they get the message, Duolingo made the same mistake with the sun.

First, "Ist der Mond im Himmel?" was given in the "Type what you hear" exercise, then a minute later it is not accepted as a correct translation. Not nice.
