I got up at 4AM today and found the beautiful full moon setting, do they call that “moonset”? Well, that got me thinking about how the ocean tide works and me questioning myself, “does the moon pull water from the ocean?” or is it the other way around? I know moon has some gravitational/magnetic pull on earth but is that strong (stronger than the sun) enough to pull waters? Or the sun doesn’t have much magnetic pull because it’s much farther away from the earth than moon?
I decided to do some research so my brain gets smarter.
