Re: A simple question (Dogrock)

"I'm sure the moon would also
appear to accellerate if the earth wasn't rotating."

Why would that be? Please forgive my asking, but do you mean the daily rotation of the Earth, or the rotation Earth would have it it were tidally locked to the Sun?

Also, please tell me why the appearance of acceleration, rather than actual acceleration, is important. I'm confused.
