Moon Earth Astronomy

The moon takes over 4,000 million years accompanying the Earth in its journey around the Sun's gravitational interaction between Earth and the Moon has significant effects on both objects. But what if the moon left orbit and disappeared within the confines of space.? What changes would occur on Earth?. Although it seems highly unlikely the Moon is receding from us at a speed of 3.8 cm per year. seem insignificant, but multiply 3.8 x million years and appears to be a considerable figure. Well, we think that all of a sudden the moon disappears suddenly for whatever reason.

The first consequence would be that most will never see its circumference in our night sky bright claro.La second most important consequence, the land would be affected the biosphere. The gravitational effect exerted by the Moon is reciprocal, a proof of this is undoubtedly the effect of the tides, and its importance is vital. Without the action of the tides, ocean currents would be much weaker and tend to stagnate, the banks would lose their natural cleaning system forward and backward through the water, the canals of the city would be stuck. But exisistiria a more important problem is the following question: Climate change If we leave the moon in its orbit around the Earth, would suffer at the climatic consequences global.La synchronization between the rotation and translation on itself around of the Earth causes always see the same face of the moon. This movement causes the axis of rotation of the Earth is anchored to a fixed position. Otherwise every few thousand years the climate vary in different areas of the Earth dramatically, with terrible consequences for species adaptation problems and surely produce mass extinctions. The Earth's angular momentum also vary and each time the Earth would rotate a little faster. What it is absolutely certain is that the Moon is receding from us, slowly, if, part of the energy generated by the Earth's rotation is transferred to satellite and vice versa. Thus, the Earth rotates more and more slowly, about 1.5 milliseconds every 100 years, the Moon moves faster and as I say, leaves about 3.8 cm per year.
