The Earth and Moon orbit the Sun. The Earth takes 365 days to orbit the Sun, while the Moon takes 27 days to orbit the Earth. The Moon's gravity pulls on the Earth and causes the ocean's tides. The Sun's gravity keeps the Moon and Earth in their orbits. Without it, the Moon would escape from the Earth's orbit.

The Moon is slowly moving away from Earth at a rate of about 4 centimeters per year. The Moon does not have its own light, it just reflects the Sun’s light. Earth has a greater gravitational pull on the Moon than the Sun does, which is why the Moon orbits around Earth and not the Sun.
