Not sure how many of you know this or not, but the moon is slowly leaving the Earth. The moon is actually pulling away from the Earth around 3.8 cm per year. Why is this happening you may ask. Well, as we all know, the moon affects the tides here on Earth. Actually, the moon cuases the Earth to be a bit oblong from the gravitational pull. But, needless to say, the Earth causes the moon to speed up a bit and the moon also slows doen the Earths spin. But, that is barely noticeable. So, we all say .. Wow, that is neat and good, but that does it mean? Well, the Moon will not totally leave the Earth. It will move slowly out to a distance to where the push and pull are equal and it will stabilize there. So, that brings me to my final statement, that we can expect that in 15 billion years, the moon will finally stabilize and an Earth day will become equal to 55 days now. Wow, hate to see that work week. But, for you lazy people, there is no need to fret, because in about 7 billion years, the Sun will have evolved into a red giant and incinerate the Earth and the Moon.
