🌚Do We Always See The Same Side Of The Moon?

Yes, we always see the same side of the moon because the time taken by the moon to rotate about its axis is the same as the time it takes to orbit the earth.

Some people also have a misconception that the moon does not spin on its axis because the moon keeps the same face towards the earth. But it is not true Moon does spin and takes about 27.3 days to complete one rotation which is the same time to orbit Earth.
