The Moon orbits the Earth with respect to the fixed stars in an average of 27 days, 7 hours and 43.7 minutes. It orbits the earth from west to east in the same direction as the earth rotates around its axis. For an earthly observer it orbits the earth apparently in one day because of its much faster rotation - just like the sun, the planets and the fixed stars - and therefore rises in the east and sets in the west. The moon itself moves relative to the fixed stars in the right-angled direction of the earth's rotation, so its apparent orbit of the earth takes about 50 minutes longer than 24 hours. This adds up to a whole day in one month, as the Moon actually orbits the Earth once during this time.

The apparent size of the Moon from the Earth's point of view varies, depending on distance, between 29.4′ and 33.5′ around an average value of just under 32′ (angular minutes), about 0.5°. The size of the solar disk varies between 31,5′ and 32,5′ around a similar average value. With a suitable constellation the moon can therefore completely cover the sun and a total solar eclipse can occur.
