FAMILIAR SCENE ON CASS COUNTY FARM r Real Moon Circles Earth Once Every 27 Days, 7 Mrs, Indiana U. Astronomy Dept. With • artificial satellites rating all the headlines these days, it seems appropriate to give some attention to the earth's old natural space companion, the moon. Since the dawn of history, the moon has undoubtedly been the chief celestial object to at'ract the attention and wonder of the human race. Nothing else in the sky has been the inspiration of so much poetry, folklore, and popular misconception. The moon probably was launched, like Sputnik, - from the earth. The launching power probably was some 'violent tidal upheaval when the earth was a great, liquid mass. The moon's speed, like Sputnik's, was great enough partly to balance the earth's gravity, although not to escape into space. Today the moon revolves -once around the earth in 27 days, seven hours, and 43 minutes. Actually, the time between two new moons is longer—29 days, 12 hours, and 44*minutes, because of complications caused 'by the motion of the earth-moon combinatiin around the sun. The moon is nearly, spherical The annual corn cut is on. Many area farmers are now in the fields like Junior Yoder, shown above, who is harvesting on the Clem Shiles farm one mile east of Flora on Highway 18.

Mr. and Mrs. Bill Sa'ylors and the nation of the great North- South division, of. opinion within the Democratic Party. He is fol-', in shape, with an average diameter of about .2,200 miles, a little more than one-fourth that of, the earth. Its surface is one-third the earth's, and its volume one forty-ninth. Because its average density is less than the earth's, it would take 81 moons to weigh as much as our globe. We know what only one side.of the moon looks like, since it always keeps the same face toward the earth. Technically, this is because the moon rotates once on its axis as it revolves once around the earth (the'moon shows all sides to the sun.) Sees Left Side Only This is similar to the movement of a horse around a circular racetrack—the horse is constantnly turning to the left, and an observer in the middle of the track sees only the left side of the horse. However, perhaps the simplest explanation is that the earth, with, its greater gravity, has "latched on" to one face of the moon. One theory holds that when it was first formed the moon was spinning rapidly on its axis. It .was then in a fluid state and tides were raised within it by the earth's gravity. These tidei slowed down the spinning until. the mood was in a position where friction could no longer act. To an observer on the earth, then the moon had ceased to rotate. Sputnik I, plus the rocket and nose-cone used in its launching, and Sputnik II bring to 35 the nnmber of known satellites of planets in our solar system. Jupi-' ter leads with 12, Saturn has nine, ' Uranus five, Neptune two, and Mars two. The odo'est of the satellites is Phobos, one of the two of Mars. Phobos, only five miles in diameter, revolves about Mars much faster than the planet tui-ns on its axis. Therefore, Phobos rises in the west- and sets in. the east. By the way, phases of our moon for November are: Full moon, 7th; last quarter, 15th; new moon, 21st; and first quarter, 29th.
