Why we only see one face of the Moon

Post by lrenshaw » Wed Sep 19, 2012 4:51 pm

Hi All,

There was a question asked at the meeting last night as to why we only see one face of the Moon. I explained the best I could, but for a much easier explanation see the attached youtube video link.

For more detailed information on the Moon orbit, see the following attached link.

Hope this helps and educates, as it certainly did me when I looked this up.

Regards

Lee
