The Moon Does Not Go Around the Earth



The Moon is our planet's sole natural satellite and nearest celestial body. The Moon orbits the Earth and it takes about one month to complete the full cycle from New Moon to New Moon.

Let's take a look at the phases of the Moon and its rotation cycle. We'll see that the Moon is not going around the Earth – it is traveling along with the Earth – around the Sun. #brightside TIMESTAMPS
