Moon is falling on the Earth!
We almost always see a big round ball in the sky at night time, and you may have asked yourself why does it stay there and don't fall on my head?
The moon is always falling towards the Earth but because it travels at a speed of 2,288 miles per hour (3,683 kilometers per hour) around the Earth, this won't happen.
Basically, to answer this question imagine if you had a bucket full of water, now you begin to make circles with your arm and the bucket over your head. You will notice when the bucket is over your head, the water doesn't fall. This is because the gravity force is being nullified by the inertia you are giving to the bucket by spinning it fast. Slow the spin and the water will spill on your head. Earth is YOU and the bucket is the Moon.
Same thing will happen if the Moon decides to slow down for any reason. Also if Moon decided to start moving way faster, the Earth would not be able to attract it with more force and the Moon would fly into space the same direction it was spinning.
