The Theory of the Lunar Motion (Lunar Cycles)

Authors: V.D.Krasnov

Continuous attempts to create theories of the Moon's motion have been made since the time of Isaac Newton. The theory of the Moon's motion which would take into account the influence of the Sun, Earth and other planets proved to be one of the most complicated tasks in astronomy. In this article, a physical model of the lunar motion built on the basis of the statements of the "Comprehensive Law of Motion of Objects in Planetary Type Systems" is presented. It is shown that the Moon's motion is formed by a complex combination of the gravitational attraction from the Earth and the Sun, acting on the Moon in the direction of the planetary system's motion. In accordance with the physical model presented, a calculation of the Moon's motion is performed. The results of the calculations of the Moon's motion in the field of mutual interaction of the Earth, Sun, and Moon, agree with the motion observed and confirm the Theory of Lunar Motion set forth here. Any quantity of bodies (planets) affecting the Moon's motion could be included in the the calculations. The results of the calculations verify the "Comprehensive Law of Motion of Objects in Planetary Type Systems".
