...Moon Phases The moon is akin to a natural satellite off the earth. At night when darkness sets in, it glows by reflecting light from the sun. It revolves around the earth making a complete revolution in thirty days. The revolution ensures that its position in relation to both the earth and the sun varies. The changing positions result in its light being felt differently on earth. For instance, at times it is stronger and its light is felt for longer (Lang 66). When the moon is in between the sun and the earth as shown in picture eight, its effects are not felt. The face of the earth that is lit receives its light from the sun whose rays...

...Moon Journal I collected data for a whole week, observing the position and phase of the moon each day, and analysed the data and made the conclusions below from the data and my own research: The moon moves in a circular orbit around the earth. It revolves around the earth in a westward direction across the sky. The moon’s initial direction is eastward, but the earth also rotates eastward and at a much higher speed. Therefore, when the moon is observed, it appears to revolve in a westerly direction each day. From research, I found out that the moon takes approximately 27.3 days to rotate...

The moon has a thick atmosphere preventing people from learning more of its surface characteristics in the period of voyager missions. The moon is known to be composed of 50% ice and 50% half rocky material. Titan is similar to other moons of Saturn. Unlike other moon, Titan is dense due to its higher gravity and large size. The atmosphere of Titan is composed of double cloud layers of 200km and 300km, which is equivalent to 125 miles and 186 miles respectively above the surface. Titan do not have a...

...Moon affiliation The Moon One of the uniqueness of the earth among the terrestrial planets is the fact that it hasa large satellite, also called the moon. The moon in relation to the earth, has the largest mass when it comes to comparing it to any other satellite-parent in existence (Astronomy Today, 2014). A number of evidences have proved that the moon was formed from the earth as a result of an impact that occurred soon after the earth was formed. Due to this, the moon has been key in the process of the earth’s evolution, and the appearance and development of life on earth. Billions of years ago, a body the size of Mars, also known as Theia, crashed into a very young earth causing a near...

Well, the moon did not completely go round the earth for the one week making me estimate that the time taken for a complete circle is one revolution sidereal period or 27.3 days. The position at this time changes relative to the stars in the sky having in mind that there are 360 degrees in a complete circle (John, 256).
