The moon rises and sets about 51 minutes later each day, as it goes through the various phases.

The moon is a satellite of the Earth that orbits around the earth.

About 59% of the moon’s surface is visible from earth.

The surface area of the moon is 14,658,000 square miles or 9.4 billion (9,381,120,000) acres.

The moon rotates at 10 miles per hour compared to the 1000 miles per hour earth rotation.
