How is there shadows on the moon if theres no gravity there?

quantumclaustrophobe say: Well... light has nothing to do with gravity... so, if something is shining on the moon (like the sun), and something is in the way of the sun (like, a tall rock), you'd get a shadow beyond that rock.
That being said, the moon does indeed have gravity, but it's only about 1/6th as much as the Earth's.

MARK say: What a bizarre question. The Moon does have gravity, which at its surface is 1.62 m s^-2. This compares with the Earth's value of 9.807 m s^-2. The Moon's gravity is approximately one-sixth the gravity on Earth.

Shadows and gravity are not related.
-
Adullah M say: If there were no gravity on the moon , then there would be no moon to be seen, there is no shadow from no moon then.
-
JosephV say: 1. Shadows: Proof - The so called 'Man in the moon' is a series of shadows in the craters on the moon.
2. Gravity: Proof - The shadows on the moon best seen on a full moon night is a series of craters formed when rocks (asteroids) were attracted by lunar gravity that caused it to collide with its surface.

busterwasmycat say: there is gravity, and shadows are not generally a gravity-affected phenomenon, so the one has nothing to do with the other right from the get-go. How is it sunny when there is no tree in the yard?
-
frank lynn say: No gravity on the moon? Stop the presses!

Actually, the moon has gravity. It's pull is roughly 1/6 of the Earth's so by your theory shadows do exist there.
-
Robert say: The only time there were shadows on the moon were when the astronauts and lunar landing gear were there. They brought the gravity with them.
-
Grundoon say: Home schooling at its finest.

CarolOklaNola say: Non sequiter. There is gravity on the Moon. The Moon has mass so it has gravity. The Moon reflects sunlight, so it can have shadows because the Moon has topography and relief.
