      The moon is constantly orbiting the earth, it orbits the Earth once every 27 days.

      did you know that 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 observers from Earth to be keeping almost perfectly still.
