    On the basis that the moon shown here is a solid colour with a glow and it'll look the same from all angles (ie a circle) what exactly do you need to do?

    and do what? As Tim said, it will look the same from every angle so why bother with animations?

    Or is it really the text that need animating to go behind the moon still?

    A common way to do this kind of thing is to apply the CC Sphere effect to an image of the Moon's surface. Because the image has to be shaped just so for this to work, I'd search for 'moon texture' to find a stock image of the Moon. (The term 'texture' refers to a 2D image that is used to wrap or overlay a 3D object.)

    Here's a link to a tutorial and sample project that show how to do this for the Earth. The tutorial rambles a lot; you can probably learn what you need from the example project.
