The Moon is 384,403 kilometers (238,857 miles) from the Earth.  Its diameter is 3,476 kilometers (2,160 miles).  Both the rotation of the Moon and its revolution around the earth takes 27 days, 7 hours, and 43 minutes.  When the moon makes one revolution around the earth, it makes one full rotation.  That is why we always see the same face of the Moon.  This rotation is caused by an unsymmetrical distribution of mass in the Moon, which has allowed Earth's gravity to keep one lunar hemisphere permanently turned toward Earth.  Check: http://www.moonconnection.com/moon_phases.phtml
