Why does the Moon follow me everywhere when I move?
- the Moon appears to follow you because it is very far away, and objects like trees and houses that you pass by are very close by comparison.
- as you walk or drive along, things much closer to you, like trees and houses, appear to move between you and the Moon.
- because the Moon is so far away, it doesn’t seem to move at all (compared to you) and appears to be following you.
