Earth’s Gravitational Pull Also Affects Moon

Gravitational forces between the earth and the moon have effect on both our planet and its companion satellite, claim scientists. It is a known fact that tides in ocean of earth rise high because of the direct effect of the moon's gravity. But scientists have found that the same effects also take place on the moon because of the earth's gravitational pull.
