The moon's GRAVITY pulls Earth's water away from Earth


Gravity attracts things, if an object has more mass, there will be more gravity. When the moon revolves around the Earth its gravity is just strong enough to pull the tides in the direction that is facing the moon. Since the moon still orbits around the Earth, different faces have different tides, so there are high tides and low tides.
