I am writing a sci fi book that takes place on the moon and finf your site very useful. You wouldn't happen to know of a resource for (1) variations of the names of various features (2) a more complete list of crater names (3) more detail (height, diameter, etc of various features. Thanks

This is a very informative, technically excellent site that provides a wealth of information, about the moon, and some planets, as well as some of the "loonies" that have signed the guest book. I knew that some full moons had names, but not that every full moon has a name.

from Andrew in Dunstable UK

Great site, but earth has two moons, could not find the second one with orbit of 452 years approx I've seen it.

reply: I assume you're referring to Cruithne. It's more accurate to call this captured asteroid a companion rather than a moon, as it doesn't orbit the Earth, but rather orbits the Sun in a complex pattern that is linked to the Earth's orbit. You're extremely lucky to have seen it - with a magnitude of 16 (very faint) you need access to a 30" telescope (very large).

from Michael Boocock in Staines, Middlesex

An amazing site, I'm studying navigation does anyone know why tides are predicted on an orbit of 28 days when the astronomy books say the moon takes 29.53 days to orbit?1 strange anomaly.

reply: You are right about the difference, but your figures are almost reversed. The time taken for the Moon to complete one orbit of the Earth measured against the stars is 27.3 days, technically called the sidereal period. Spring tides roughly coincide with full moons and new moons, which occur on a 29.53 day cycle called the synodic period.

The reason for the difference is this: a spring tide happens during new and full moons because the Sun, Earth and Moon are in a straight line, making the gravitational pull on the oceans strongest. From this point, while the Moon completes one orbit of the Earth in a sidereal period, the Earth has moved about 1/12 of a revolution around the Sun. Only when the Moon has travelled a bit further and completed a synodic period do the three bodies line up again causing a repeat of the spring tide.

My husband enjoys astronomy, looking through his telescope at the moon and other items occuring out there. My hobby is astrology. Either way we both enjoy this web site and observing the moon.

With modern technology, why have we never seen images of the NASA equipment and flag left on the moon as they are now. Are Nasa trying to hide something ?

reply: It's not that anything is being covered up, just that the Moon is larger and further away than many people realise. Dan Durda has created an interesting web page to illustrate how small the Apollo vehicles actually are relative to the Moon. Click on Apollo 17 - it takes 7 huge zooms to see the site as a tiny dot. Even the Hubble Space Telescope doesn't have the resolution to see objects smaller than about 85m across on the lunar surface. In theory the proposed European OWL telescope would be able to do it: it will have a 100m objective mirror with adaptive optics, but we'll have to wait 10-15 years.

Taking my first science course in 16years. Thought it would be more "introductory." Using your site to get me through by "seeing" and understanding things better. Thank you so much!
