when viewing Kerbin's North pole, does Mun orbit clockwise or counter-clockwise ?

I guess I could probably see for myself using timewarp, but I only have the demo, which doesn't have the feature.

    @MBraedley rotation != orbital direction (But I agree that that answer probably contains the simplest answer to the matter.) – user98085 Apr 26 '14 at 15:56
  • @FEichinger I'd just rather not have to rewrite the answer, and since the body rotation and orbital rotation are highly correlated in real life, it's easier to answer a single question rather than two. – MBraedley Apr 26 '14 at 16:00

Seen from over the north pole, the Mun orbits in the same direction that Kerbin rotates - counterclockwise.

    This is true for all celestial bodies in KSP, by the way. The whole solar system has a counter-clockwise spin. – Philipp May 11 '14 at 19:58
