Perihelion (when Earth is closest to the sun, in early January) can occur at any moon phase, depending on where the moon is at the time. This year, perihelion occurred with about a half moon.Similarly, perigee (when the moon is closest to Earth) can also occur at any moon phase, depending on where the sun is at the time. Next full moon is March 9, and perigee the day after, but in July, perigee happens again with a half moon.
What phase of the moon coincides with perihelion.
Does the ellipse of the moon and the sun rotate, if so, at what speed?
I still want to know what this "mystery" is.
It is believed that at perihelion, the moon is at 50 thousand km. closer to Earth than aphelion, why this difference is not visually observed.
the inner core of the earth rotates faster than the surface of the earth. The core of the earth is dragging the surface via viscoelastic friction between the core and mantle.
why this difference is not visually observed.
