The Moon

Parent Category: Planet Earth
The Moon is the only natural satellite of the Earth, and the only celestial body where humans have landed. It is approximately 384,403 kilometers (238,857 miles) away from the Earth, and has an approximate diameter of 3,476 kilometers (2,160 miles).
It spins to the right of the sun. Another viewpoint: The plane of the Sun's equator is tilted by just a few degrees to the plane of the Earth's orbit. So, the Earth revolves around the Sun roughly in the plane containing the Sun's equator. The Earth certainly does not orbit over the Poles of the...
There is no such thing as up and down in space, so it just revolves  around the sun.
it means there is nice wether oh its way
Moons don't produce light.

On the 1st, 29th and 30th of November 1860.
I'm pretty sure there are more than just 2000 moons!!!! Our  universe is HUGE and continues to expand everyday, so there must be  like MILLIONS OF MOONS! I can't exactly give you a number of how  many moons exist in the universe, because that would take more than  5 billion years.  ...
Gravitation follows an inverse square law, so a gravitational field  while eventually small enough to be negligible will never be  non-existent.
This effect is caused by the atmosphere of the earth. The reason  for the orange colour is due to the scattering of light by the  atmosphere. When the moon is near the horizon, the moonlight must  pass through much more atmosphere than when the moon is directly  overhead. By the time the...
The moon always appears larger at full moon because it is closer to  Earth.
2000 miles ... then you will run into a black hole which will then take you to a portal that takes you back to your house....shortly after you will die from a hernia
The moon can rise between 6pm and 9pm.
Yes, otherwise we wouldn't be able to see them.
When the Moon was in its molten stage 4.5 billion years ago,  lighter aluminum-rich material floated to the surface and created  what we know today as the Lunar Highlands. The heavier dark basalts  sank toward the center of the Moon but later percolated upward  through cracks and fissures that...
Almost all planets in the Solar system orbit the sun  anti-clockwise when viewed from the northern side, with the  exception of Venus, which orbits anti-clockwise. This is due to the  initial conditions of the gas cloud that was collapsing into the  planets while our Star system was just forming...
Whenever it is at its perigee, i.e. its closest distance to Earth.  This happens every 27,55 days, a time interval known as an  Anomalistic Month. The moon perigee can vary between 356000km and  370000km, so the moon's apparent size varies accordingly. However,  you'd not be able to tell the...
The moon's average distance to Earth is about 384400km. Its closest  approach to earth brings it to 356000km. So it never really is  50000km "closer to the Earth than usual" as long as you are  referring to its average distance by that.
The Astronaut Class of 1978, otherwise known as the "Thirty-Five  New Guys," was NASA's first new group of astronauts since 1969.  This class was notable for many reasons, including having the first  African-American and first Asian-American astronauts. During  Women's History Month in March,...
It shines becuase it reflects off the sun. But during the day it is  blocked by the suns light
because the earth is spinning and as it spins the sun appears to  move.
Yes, "Whenever the sun is shining in your town" is a fragment. It  does not complete the thought.    Some examples of a complete sentence would be:    Whenever the sun is shining in your town, the children come out  to play.  Whenever the sun is shining in your town, the road is too hot...
A penumbral lunar eclipse takes place when the Moon moves through  the faint, outer part of the Earth's shadow.
Neptune's and Earth's orbits place them at different distances at different times. The approximate minimum distance between the two is about 4.3 billion kilometers, and the approximate maximum distance between the two is about 4.7 billion kilometers.
If you've ever heard of the expression "once in a blue moon", you would probably refer to it as being "rare" or "unusual", so if you were born on a blue moon (which I have just found out I was) it means you're pretty unique!
Weight is a measurement of how hard gravity is pulling on a set  amount of mass. The stronger the gravity on a heavenly body  (planet, moon, star, asteroid, etc) the stronger the pull on mass.  A block of lead that weighs 100 pounds here on Earth would weigh 16  pound on the moon (since the...
Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto
No, they don't. The earth makes one full rotation around it's axis  once every 24 hours, whereas the moon makes one rotation around  it's axis once every 27.3 days. Interestingly, the moon also makes  one full rotation around the earth in this same time period, so the  same side of the moon is...
Bad idea. Weight-loss should be gradual.   Here's a program for the period in which you want to lose weight:   Plenty of moderate aerobic exercise, no sweetened liquids at all,  and no junk food at all. Preferably no sugar, and as little added  salt and processed foods as possible. Eat 3...
In 2017, a solar eclipse will occur in USA not Pakistan.
The next eclipse is a total eclipse of the sun on March 8-9, 2016,  caused by a supermoon at the new phase.  The path of totality for that eclipse will pass mainly over the  waters of the Pacific Ocean. Only those along that long, narrow  path can see the total solar eclipse. The path of...
Apollo 11 was the first manned spacecraft to land on the moon.
Because the phases of the moon are determined by its relative position to the Earth and Sun. The cycle of phases is a bit longer than its orbital period of 27.32 days, because as the Earth orbits the Sun during that period, the moon's orbit must 'catch up' a little bit to cycle through the same...
We don't really know how much water there is in the solar system. Europa, one of Jupiter's 63 moons, might have a tremendous amount of water. Scientists continue to find water; even on our own moon.
I found it odd how his accomplishments are known, but not his name. Usually, its the other way around. The man who did both of those things is named Jules Verne.
Living on the Moon would be expensive. But if you were doing it  anyway, there are many effects. The Moon's gravity is low. Your  bones would lose calcium. It is not possible to enjoy direct  sunlight, which is necessary for the body to create vitamin D, so  you would have other health problems....

Yes you can. It involves working in the breaker box and changing out breakers. You'll also have to "re-identify" the black wire to green for your ground.If you think you can do this, post back and I'll provide details on how.Yes I Can! The fuse box has 2 30amp fuses.       At the breaker...
Pluto's moon is about the size of Pluto, so they pretty much orbit  each other.
A small mini-planet, about the size of Mars, slammed into the Earth. This was when the earth was completely molten, so it knocked some of the lava off the Earth to form a ring around it. Over time that ring crashed together to form the moon.
Full moon-It's bright and fully round.New moon-It's there but invisible.
Because the shapes of bays, inlets, and the ocean floor can affect the flow of water.
Actually, no it is not. It is cold.
It could be seen by millions of people
YES the moon is made of cheese gromit!
Then our hours on day and night would be alot longer
Need clarification please. The "it" you are referring to seeing, does that represent; A) the flashlight, B) the light from the flashlight, or C) "the speed of light"? Did you mean to imply that the flashlight was switched on? Is it an "old fashioned" bulb, an LED bulb, a laser light, or some other...
When something orbits something else, it means that it travels in a  circular path around it. In the case of the sun and earth, the  earth orbits the sun.

The moon's orbit traces an elliptical path around the earth. The  semi major axis is 384,748 km, and the apogee and perigee distances  are 405,400 and 362,600 km, respectively.
it is caused by gravity, force, and magnetic field, even the  earth's atmosphere
Lunatics are people who often stare at the moon...If you spot one of these majestic creatures, you better get a torch and pitchfork, and report to the police before you are brutally murdered and raped.If you were stupid enough to beleive this.... You yourself may be 1 of the following...
While there is a total solar eclipse in the year 2017, the path of totality will NOT pass over the state of Connecticut. The Moon will block out about 75% of the http://wiki.answers.com/When_is_the_next_solar_eclipse_in_Connecticut# here in the North East. If you wish to see this total solar...
about 30 minutes if you're in america, but if it is in other  countries, it lasts longer in asia, shorter in europe, mediumized  in australia and antartica
It's "axis" is probably the answer, but the question doesn't make complete sense.
365.24 days. Notice that on the average, it has to be exactly the same period for the moon as it is for the earth. Otherwise, over a period of a few hundred years, the moon would lead or lag the earth by so much, and be so far away from us, that we could hardly see it.
I think it helps thinking of Earth as being "pulled apart" by the  difference in gravitation, by the Moon, on both sides of Earth (the  nearer side, and the farther side).
Because the earth is not very far from the moon
hollowed out places on the moons surface are called

Yes it is true we only see one side of the moon. We only see oneside of the moon because the moon rotates around the Earth at theexact same speed as it rotates around its own axis, so that thesame side of the moon is constantly facing the surface of theearth. This means that one full 'day' of the...
Not much further than it is from yours.
One week after the "new" phase, the Moon will be in the first quarter phase.
