i knew how the moon rotates - but thought it was unique - instead just the opposite.
ty for the clarity.

Thx, I had to see something visually to understand it. It seemed weird to me otherwise.

If all moons do this to their planets then it's all a-ok with me.

Read "Who built the moon?" and you will realize its artificial. There are so many "coincidences" there that its truly fashinating.

I thought we lost the moon in 1999??

Yea, there was a massive explosion caused by nuclear waste being stored there!!

Moon base Alfa went with it

LOL.!! Just finnished watching that great and brilliant series. Got the DVDs awhile ago

But seriously, when you get to read about the moon you will find quite a few interesting facts


Be safe people

There is a very simple way that everybody here can prove to themselves once and for all that the moon does indeed rotate as some here have suggested - and it is not complicated.

1. Get 2 balls (oranges / basketballs etc etc).
2. Mark one of them with an "X" - (this mark will be that part of the moon we always see)
3. Place them at a distance of about 0.5m apart on a table.
4. Now, move the ball marked with the X around the stationary ball ENSURING that the X is always facing the stationary ball.

In order to keep the X facing the stationary ball you are rotating the ball marked with an X - that ball being your moon.

This actually verifies that if it didn't rotate, we would eventually see all of the Moon as it orbited the Earth.

From the perspective of celestial and coastal navigation, using the moon is quite challenging, there are quite a few additional attributes that need to be considered, some being:
1. Moons elliptical orbit
2. Earths rotation
3. Due to the lunar orbit the moon shifts Eastwards 13 degrees daily, consequently creating:-
4. Semi-diurnal tidal pattern repeating itself every 24hrs and 52 minutes - net effect being tide times move back about an hour a day
5.The latitude on the Earth that the moon is overhead varies about 25 degrees either side of the equator during the lunar month.

Just to name a few....................

Haha i was trying to see how i could explain that on post but you made it easy lol... i was using both of my hands(fisted) to do that hahaha.

Good job.

Yes... that and the way the moon "rang like a bell (sorta)" when a command module was slammed into it back in the day gave rise to the alien satellite conspiracy.

Uhh error!
If a 'command module' was slammed into it the astronauts would have died.

We slammed a 'lunar module' into it.

We know that it does not rotate but the why is a big question.

Here are some documents:
www.google.com...

because I know Tesla published a couple of magazine articles on the subject.
Like this one:
www.scribd.com...

When I saw your post I thought of the Moon origin.
That is also a mystery.
One birth was from Earth and might have been before the Flood except for some tails of the
moon less Earth in the Velikovsky online archive varchive.org

www.google.com...

See

Arcadians are said to have possessed their land before the birth of Jove, and the folk is older than the Moon.”

www.varchive.org...
hint before the time of Jove so the Moon came alone with the cosmic time of Jove

evidence for this assertion ?


None it was in jest. I have no proof for or against alien or human or whatever colonies on the moon. Of course same could be said of it being made of swiss cheese...

No the moon is a planetary body orbiting our earth in a tidal lock always facing us and oddly has the same apparent size as the sun. A strange and bizarre coincidence, that not unlike life spontaneously emerging from primordial ooze and after billions of years able to ponder the beauty of the moon.

Its due to its lack of magnetic poles. The electro magnetic free energy is what rotates earth with its poles and huge IRON CORE. Venus doesnt rotate either. Astrologist and scientists observed this for years, but after Tesla an a variety of technology they made go black, and thus hidden from the public, they suddenly reinvented a spin on Venus that matches ours so precisely it looks like it doesnt spin. They LIE ALOT.

I found that out when someone with a military background said their hidden technology was found via observation of the solar system.

No.

Our Moon rotates once for every revolution around the Earth. That's not just a coincidence, but rather that's how the orbital mechanics of some moons and other bodies work.

But it has nothing to do with a lack of magnetic poles, as you assert. It's due to a process called "Tidal Locking", and it is actually a very common thing in out solar system. Tidal locking has to do with the gravity of the parent body acting on the orbiting body in such a way that produces a tidal bulge. Over time (millions of years) this tidal bulge creates a torque and a drag on the orbiting body, causing it to lock gravitationally with the parent body, always keeping one face toward that parent.

Considering this is a natural result of orbital mechanics, our moon is by no means unique in doing this. There are over 30 moons in the solar system that do this exact same thing (i.e., always show the same face toward it's parent. Eight moons of Jupiter do this, and 15 moons of Saturn do this. There are also binary stars that are tidally locked to each other, and some planets outside our solar system that always show one face to it's parent star (rotating once per revolution around the star -- or exactly once per one of its years.

This is a completely understood and well-known process. It is NOT a mystery as to why the Moon turns only once per revolution.

Or the moon is a sophisticated hologram used for billions of years to fool the human race into thinking they live in a secluded world.

Never heard that theory before, who or what is behind the hologram and why would they want humans to believe they are living in a secluded world?

Have you seen 2001: A Space Odyssey? Dawn of Man, who places that monolith amongst the apes..... in a period of time when no such technology existed to craft such a stone?

Many theories could be said about our world.

What if humans have been living in one long ever lasting continuous day, we just mistake it for thousands of years due to phases of the moon/sun...

It's actually 27.3 days. The Moon's synodic period (the time it takes to complete one phase cycle) is a bit longer because the Earth is, itself, orbiting around the thing that causes those phases.


No, you are incorrect. The sidereal period is 27.3, the synodic period is about 29.5

I know.. please forgive. Made two major errors in one thread... Should have taken a break after work before getting on ATS. Trust me. I STILL am going around kicking myself over this thread.

What makes it even more comical/sad is that astronomy and space top my main interests as a kid and I know better.

Was on autopilot and just simply wasn't thinking.

I did learn about the lunar libration though so it wasn't a total loss for me.
That animated moon picture is hypnotizing to me.

I like it how the two people who mentioned Tesla are also dead wrong about the Moon not rotating. Stop chasing conspiracies and coverups, and learn some basic celestial mechanics. The Moon does rotate.
