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.

But there’s a common misconception that the Moon goes around the Earth. Which isn’t true.

We’ll see that the Moon is not going around the Earth – it is traveling along with the Earth – around the Sun.
