Because the moon's periods of rotation on its axis and of revolution around the Earth
are equal ... 27.32 days.
-- To an observer on Earth, the moon always presents the same face.
-- To an observer on the moon, the Earth is always at nearly the same place in the sky.
. . . . . . If the observer is on the side of the moon that faces Earth, it's ALWAYS in his sky,
and he can watch the Earth rotate completely, roughly every 24 hours 50 minutes.
. . . . . . If the observer is on the side that doesn't face Earth, then it's NEVER in his sky.
The moon does not rotate so on Earth we always see the same side no matter where the observer is.
Yes. The moon spins at just the right speed so that the same face always faced the Earth.
Yes. The Moon always shows the same 'face' to the earth (with just a minor wooble).
The moon rotates in the same direction as its orbit. The rate of rotation is such that the same face is always pointing at the earth.
Exactly the same as the ones we see the Moon go through from Earth, except that Earth does not always turn the same face to the Moon.
We see the same of the moon from earth because that is the side that always faces the sun. So that's how we see the moon phases and the side we always see. You always see the same side of the moon from earth because the moon orbits on its axis at the same speed that it rotates around the earth, so the same side of the moon is always facing the earth.
Yes it does but at the same rate that the Earth spins. Therefore we on Earth always see the same face of it.
15 days one side 15 days other No it's always the same face. Because the moon spins on its axis exactly once per its orbit of the earth. It's a tidal friction effect. In zillions of year's time the same face of the earth will always face the moon also.
The Moon always faces the same side because its gravity with Earth makes it pull around us. When you see half of the Moon its because of the way Earth is rotating or how the Moon is positioned.
Cause us to always see the same "face" of the moon. This is called synchronous rotation.
Because that is the side that is always facing the Earth. The Moon is tidally locked with the Earth and thus it's rotation always keeps the same face towards earth.
This explains why we always see the same "Man in the Moon" face; we're always seeing the same side of the Moon.
The same as during the day. The same face of the Moon is always pointed at the Earth; so we here on Earth never see the other side.
Yes, and yes. The Moon rotates once per orbit, always keeping the same face turned to the Earth.
because your ugly face made it
No. Because of the Orbit of the Moon around the Earth & the 24 hr rotation of the Earth, we will always see the same face of the Moon. The only people to see the far side of the moon are the Apollo astronauts.
because it rotates at the same rate as it fevolves
The answer is yes. We always see the same side of the moon from the Earth because the time it takes the moon to circle the Sun is the same as the time it takes to circle itself.
Everyone on earth sees the same face of the moon.
The moon rotates and revolves at the same rate
We on earth always see the same face of the moon, but the "dark side" of the moon is not always dark. For example, in a lunar eclipse, the back side of the moon is receiving all of the sunlight, while the side facing us receives none.
29 1/2 Earth days - same as the Moon cycle (from full moon to full moon) we see on Earth. (The Moon always shows us the same side.)29 1/2 Earth days - same as the Moon cycle (from full moon to full moon) we see on Earth.

It's tidally locked on the Earth, thus the same face always points inward.
As long as you're on Earth, you will always see the same side of the moon. This is because the moon is tidally locked with the earth, meaning is rotational period is the same as its revolutionary period. This allows us to always see the same side of the moon, no matter where on earth we are.
Yes, we always do.
