Bio - Dr. C. Alex Young

#AlexYoung recently conducted an interview with the #WashingtonPost regarding the #LunarEclipse to take place on August 21, 2017. He was asked why, since the earth and moon rotate counter clockwise creating the surface observation that they are moving East to West in the sky, the moon will be moving across the United States from Salem , OR to Charleston, SC or West to East ? He explained that it is because the moon is moving twice as fast as the earth which is curious because we know the moon takes 27 days to circumambulate the earth whereas in that same time the earth would have made 27 complete revolutions. Someone needs to make a phone call to follow up with him . 301.286.4441 c.a.young@nasa.gov
