The Earth's Moon - by StudyJams
The Earth's moon reflects the sun, and so it is visible at night. It also rotates at the same rate that it orbits, 29.5 days, which means that we only see one side of it. The moon has one-sixth the gravity of the Earth and no atmosphere at all. Learn more about our moon with this slide show from StudyJams. Vibrant pictures are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
