No. The Moon revolves around the Earth, and the Earth (and the other planets) revolve around the Sun.

In a way, the moon does revolve around the sun. It orbits around the Earth, which is orbiting around the sun at the same time.

Planets revolve around the Sun. Moons revolve around planets.

The Moon rotates around the Earth because it is much closer to our planet than it is to the sun and is affected by our gravity more. But also note that the Earth-moon system jointly does revolve around the sun. In that sense the moon does revolve around the sun, as well as the Earth.

No. The Sun does not revolve around the Moon, the Moon revolves around the Earth and the Earth revolves around the Sun. ========================================= The Earth and Moon both revolve around their common center of mass, which, because there is such a great difference in their masses, is inside the Earth. The Earth/Moon common center of mass and the sun revolve around their common center of mass, which, because there is such a great difference in their masses, is inside the sun.

No, the moon does not revolve around the sun. The Earth does though. You might be getting confused because the moon revolves around the Earth.

The moon revolves around the Earth and the Earth revolves around the sun. The moon does not revolve around the sun.

Well the moon revolves around the earth in about a month. And it doesn't revolve around the sun. Thus, it takes the moon the same time it takes the Earth to revolve around the sun. So about 365.26 days

The Earth and Moon both revolve around the Earth/Moon common center of mass, while that one and the Sun both revolve around the (Earth/moon)/Sun common center of mass. A simplified answer that is nearly correct is that the Moon revolves around the Earth. The Earth and Moon then revolve together around the Sun.

The moon revolves around the Earth, and the Earth revolves around the sun.

No. The moon revolves around the Earth (actually, they revolve around each others common center of gravity) as they both revolve around the sun.

The Moon and Earth are closer in mass than they are to the Sun.

Sure it revolves around the Sun - both Earth and Moon move together around the Sun. Answer2: The moon revolves around the earth because the earth's gravitational force on the moon is greater than the sun's. The sun force is enough to also make the moon revolve around the sun also, so the moon revolves around both the earth and the sun.

The moon does not revolve around the Sun; it revolves around the Earth. One revolution takes a little under 29 days.

As the Moon revolves around the Earth, the time taken to revolve around the Sun is the same as the Earth ~365.25 days or one year.

The moon revolves around the earth, and the earth revolves around the sun. The reason for this, simply, is gravity.

The Moon revolves around Earth, and Earth revolves around the Sun

It take 27.32 days for the moon to revolve around the earth. At the same time, the Earth and moon revolve as a bound pair around the sun every 365.25 days.

As the Earth's companion, the moon travels around the sun in one year.
