The Earth's water is affected by the Moon´s attraction, which causes the phenomenon of tides in the oceans. Two tidal movements form and follow the Moon as it orbits Earth: live tides and dead tides. Depending on whether the satellite is aligned with the Sun or not, its attractive force will be greater or less. This infographic from the Ábaco collection is part of the series The Moon, which also includes the original titles: One big leap, No secrets, Internal structure and Eclipses.
