Where would we be without the Moon? It has served as a light source, timekeeper, navigation tool, inspiration for poets, a nearby neighbor to draw us off the planet, and most importantly, it stabilizes our orbital tilt to allow life to flourish on the Earth. We dedicate this week’s blog to the study of our life-long friend, the Moon, as seen from the surface of the Earth.
