First Impact

The First Impact, also called the Giant Impact, while never depicted in the series, is the asteroid impact that occurred around 4 billion years ago which caused the Moon to split from the Earth, shown in a document in the seventh episode of the series. Little to no detail is given on this event throughout the entire series.

In the spin off Playstation 2 video game Neon Genesis Evangelion 2, the "meteor" in question was in fact the Black Moon, carrying Lilith. When the Black Moon collided with Earth, it bounced and became the Moon, satellite of the Earth, while in the crash, a small part of it, containing Lilith, detached itself and was buried in the Earth, becoming the actual Black Moon, known as the GeoFront millions of years later. (See Terms from outside of the main series for more details).

The actual scientific theory of how Earth gained its moon, called the giant impact hypothesis, postulates that a planetoid called Theia, roughly the size of Mars, formed at one of Earth's Lagrangian points and then smashed into Earth I (the planet Earth before the First Impact), causing part of the smashed-together planets to separate and coalesce into the Moon.
