Wait 27 Days Or See It Every Day?

You could wait 27 days or you could see it everyday. What is it?

The moon. Even though the true moon cycle is about 29.5 days, it takes 27 days, 7 hours, and 43 minutes for our Moon to complete one full orbit around Earth. Thus you can see the full moon every 27 days or you can moon yourself every day in the mirror. Not that you’d want to. Does anyone moon themselves? Can’t say as I’ve ever had the “pleasure”.

I Make You See the Beauty of Nature

I make you see the beauty of nature through colors,
My name makes things weigh less
And I have no weight at all.

What am I?

Light. Without light you wouldn’t be able to see anything. And light is made up of all the colors of the rainbow. Adding light to a word can mean it weighs less and light has no mass.

The Same Upside Down

A word of five letters,
Upside down is the same,
A shark does this,
But it’s not to blame.

What is the word?

SWIMS.

If you turn the word upside down it’s the same word (the W and M flip to resemble themselves). A shark swims to attack, but it’s not bad. Sharks are just trying to eat. I’d still recommend you swim away if you see one swimming toward you.
