In science class when we were younger, we all learned that the Earth rotates around the sun. When the earth does this, it creates the seasons depending on where you live. Every planet in the solar system rotates around the sun. Some of the planets have moons. The Earth has one moon, but other planets have more than one moon and some have no moons.

The Earth’s moon rotates around the Earth and it has several phrases of the moon. That is why when you look into the sky at night, you may see the moon as a sliver, a half moon or a full moon. There are several other phases that may be seen in the moon depending on its rotation around the Earth.

The answer to this question is A. The moon has its own orbit as it revolves around the Earth. The earth also follows its own orbit as it revolves around the sun. The sun is known to be the center of our solar system. Aside from Earth, there are other planets that also revolve around the sun but their distance from the sun are all different.

The sun is known to be one of the reasons why life exists on earth. Without the heat of the sun, people would not be able to survive. The rotation of the moon is evident through the tides. The moon also affects the Earth in its own way.
