A long waited shot

We always see the same side of the moon. The Moon always keeps the same side pointing towards us so we can never see the ‘back’ of the Moon from the Earth (As the moon rotates around the earth, it also rotates around its own axis at the same rate. This is why we always see the same side of the moon), but how fast he is doing it? Cruising at 3683 km/hr, wow!

The big guy out there, is just 250,000 miles (384,400 kilometres) from us

Most interesting fact about moon that fascinated me was; the Moon has no atmosphere……whoops??? Yeh! So no wind, no weather. Even the footprints left on the Moon by Apollo astronauts will remain visible for at least 10 million years because there is no erosion on the Moon.
