That is kind of a complex qoeutisn. In the simplest form, of course, the moon revolves around the Earth. The larger Earth exerts a considerable gravitational force on the smaller moon which keeps the moon is a regular orbit. The moon also exerts a weaker gravitational force on the Earth. This gravitational force has strong effects on such Earth effects as the tides of major bodies of water and the weather to a lesser degree. The moon, of course, provides light to the Earth during Earth nights depending upon its position in the Earth's sky, by reflecting sunlight. Was this answer helpful?
