Flight to the Moon

Click on the Flight to the Moon button to start the journey. First, the rocket orbits the earth several times. After a thrust impulse powerful enough to escape the Earth's gravity, you will see the rocket leave the Earth's orbit. It then follows the transfer orbit between the Earth and the Moon. As the rocket approaches quite close to the Moon, it is captured by the Moon's gravity and enters its new orbital path. Click on the Replay button to see the animation again.
