Multilingual flashcard number 77 with moon in 9 languages. Monday is named after the Moon and the other days of the week are often associated with other celestial bodies.
The Moon is 2000 miles in diameter, about 250000 miles away and takes just over 27 days to orbit the Earth. However the Earth is also moving so the moon has to travel slightly more than 360 degrees, leading to the lunar month lasting around 29 days.
