The Magnificent Moon

Feb 28, 2022 | Blog | 0 comments


Have you ever considered the many functions of our moon?

Here are a few important roles of the moon. First, the moon provides a night light. In northern countries, the full moon closest to September 22 is called the harvest moon. This occurs when many crops are being harvested. It gives farmers lots of extra light to bring in their crops.
Secondly the moon offers a lunar calendar. We get our name “month” from the moon. During the month, our moon goes through its phases to document the change of days.
Third, the moon controls our seasons and stabilizes the tilt of the Earth. Without it the Earth would swing from 0-90 degrees, and our seasons would be unpredictable.
Fourth, the moon offers a protective shield, the moon prevents many collisions of space rocks into Earth; instead, the rocks are drawn into the moon. The far side of the moon is heavily cratered from these incoming objects.
Finally the moon helps keep our oceans healthy. Each day tides are created by the gravitational pull of the moon. From 30% to 50% of our oxygen is provided by sea plankton. If there were no tides, then there would be greatly reduced marine plants due to ocean water becoming stagnant and overheated – reducing the oxygen supply upon Earth. We must have at least 18% oxygen in the air to survive. The level is currently a perfect 21%. In a way, the moon helps provide our oxygen. Our moon was designed for a purpose and the name of that Designer is Jesus.
