Rotation Of The Moon

1. Like the Earth, the Moon also rotates on its axis from west to east.
2. While rotating on its axis, it also revolves round the Earth.
3. The time taken for the Moon to make one rotation is the same as the time taken for it to go round the Earth. Therefore, from the Earth, we always see the same side of the Moon.
4. The Moon takes 27 1/3 days to make one complete rotation on its axis.
5. The Moon takes the same time (27 1/3days) to make one complete revolution around the Earth.
