The moon orbits the Earth once every 27.322 days. It also takes approximately 27 days for the moon to rotate once on its axis. As a result, the moon does not seem to be spinning but appears to ...How often does the Moon complete a full rotation?
The moon makes a complete orbit around the earth every 27.3 days. So this means that the moon orbits the earth approximately 13 times in a calendar year. Where the complexity comes in is what measurement we use to determine a full orbit of the earth.What is true of the moon's orbital and rotational periods?
The rotation period and the orbital period of the Moon are the same. Therefore, Earth-bound observers can never see the 'far-side' of the Moon. Tidal forces cause many of the moons of our solar system to have this type of orbit.Does the Moon make a full rotation?
The moon does rotate, but only very slowly. The moon completes a full rotation in a little more than 27 days. (Image credit: NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio)
