"Ask us ANYTHING!!"


How long does it take?

From:  "joe"

it takes the earth one year to orbit the sun How long dose it take for the moon to orbit the earth

Paul was the first with this: 

It takes the moon 28 days to orbit the earth.

TB smart as ever responded with this: 

The period for the Moon to complete a revolution relative to the Earth-Sun line. This is the period for lunar phases as seen on Earth, called the month, and taking 29.53 days for one phase cycle.

theMrEman agreed with Paul on this: 

it takes the moon 28 days to orbit the earth.

Todd did a bit of research and agreed with TB: 

It takes exactly 29.5 days (709 hours). Some calendars show what the moon will look like on certain days. The time from one full moon to another is one orbit around Earth.

Xach thought it may be this: 

It takes the moon 27.3 days to orbit the earth.

i know all simply answered this: 

about one month

they are watching believes that its just all a conspiracy:  

there is not moon. all that it is, is a hologram that the secret government has put up to fool the stupid into thinking there is a space

Mr. Allen gave us this tid bit of information: 

It takes the moon 29 days to orbit the Earth. This makes 2 full moons in one month a rarity, thus the phrase "Once in a Blue Moon" which Blue Moon is the name of a second full moon in a month.

Amr Shalakani concluded with this final thought: 

Regarding the "how long does it take?"......it takes a full day for the moon to complete a single rotation round the earth and that's the same speed of rotation of earth around it's self. that's why we always look at the same side of the moon all the time.
