Very interesting this Moon thread. I just wonder, has the Moon ever really orbited around the Earth, as all the classical books tell us ? I would like
to see a birds eye view actual time/position plot chart compared to the Earth.
A few months ago someone here on ATS showed a solar system birds eye view showing the Moon orbiting the Earth, but im not entirely convinced.
I think that The Moon is really a planet (or something) that just zigzags /wobbles together with the Earth around the Sun rather like the tracks of
an ice skater, and that the Moon has never actually orbited the Earth. If this could be proven true , then we definetely have found the 10th planet in
our Solar System.
Just to also add that the possibility of the Moon locking in to having the same face towards the Earth is too much of a coincidence for my liking.
Also can anyone answer which way is the Moon drifting away from the Earth? towards space, towards the Sun or generally drifting away ? If the answer
is one of the first two cases, then surely it will also be drifting nearer as well at the opposite point ?
