The moon orbits Earth and takes about 27 days to complete an orbit; however, if we plot the moon in place of the Earth, it would take approximately 365 days to complete an orbit.


The moon orbits the Earth, but if we didn't have the Earth, the moon would most likely fall into orbit with the sun. The orbital speed around the sun is much faster than that of Earth. It would take a year (365 days) in their convex orbit to complete one trip around the sun.
