THE MOON

Full Moon of September 16, 2008 / Raw Lunar Video / Earth's Moon 1080p HD


Earth's Moon orbits at a distance of 225,745 miles from the Earth.
Vital Statistics
Diameter = 2,160 miles - Weight = 81 Quintillion tons - Orbital Speed = 2,287 mph

Interesting Moon Facts
The Moon does rotate, although it is in tidal lock with the Earth. Meaning the Moon rotates at a speed as it orbits around the Earth (which is also rotating as it orbits around the sun) in perfect sync. That is, the Moon always presents the same side of itself to our view from Earth giving rise to the expression "Dark Side of the Moon". The far side or dark side of the Moon has never been viewed from the Earth.
The Moon is also the exact distance from Earth, and the exact diameter necessary to cause a total eclipse of the Sun when viewed from the proper location on Earth.
