The gravitational attraction that the Moon exerts on Earth is the cause of tides in the sea.
The tidal bulges on Earth, caused by the Moon's gravity, are carried ahead of the apparent position of the Moon by the Earth's rotation, in part because of the friction of the water as it slides over the ocean bottom and into or out of bays and estuaries.
The points where the Moon's orbit crosses the ecliptic are called the "lunar nodes": the North (or ascending) node is where the Moon crosses to the North of the ecliptic; the South (or descending) node where it crosses to the South.

The Moon differs from most other satellites of other planets in that its orbit is close to the plane of the ecliptic and not in the Earth's equatorial plane.
The most generally accepted theory states that the Moon originated from the collision between the young Earth and an impactor the size of Mars (sometimes called Theia) and was formed from material ejected from Earth as a result of the collision.
The first man-made object to reach the Moon was the unmanned Soviet probe Luna 2, which crashed into it on September 13, 1959, at 21:02:24 Z. The far side of the Moon was first seen on October 7, 1959, when the Soviet probe Luna 3 had photographed it.

It may seem curious that the inclination of the lunar orbit and the tilt of the Moon's axis of rotation are listed as varying considerably.
The slight deviation of the shadow from the actual location of the Moon (denoted by the cross) is doubly fascinating; and is the result of Earth's magnetic field twisting the shadow due to the fact that cosmic rays are charged particles.

 The Moon
Those moons display "palimpsest" craters which are merely surface markings, because as time passed, the walls which originally existed sagged back onto the flat surface.
By the laws of motion, the Moon orbits not the center of the Earth, but the center of gravity of the Earth and Moon (this will be discussed in section #11a, and the center of gravity is defined in section #25).
Of these, Luna 3 rounded the Moon, took photographs of the far side which is not seen from Earth, and later scanned and transmitted those images (on the right); unfortunately, their quality was poor.
