The Moon travels around Earth once every 27.3 days and also takes about 27 days to rotate on its axis. This means the Moon always shows us the same face. The Moon also rises around 50 minutes later every day, meaning it sometimes rises during the day and sometimes during the night.

There was also a Total Lunar Eclipse, also known as a Blood Moon, last month.
This occurred on January 20 at around 2.35am GMT and finished at 7.50am on January 21.
Lunar eclipses occur when the Moon passes into the shadow of the Earth.
This causes the bright white Moon to turn red, hence the nickname Blood Moon.
