If you look at the Moon each night, you’ll notice its appearance changes.
If you watch closely, you’ll notice the Moon changes in a regular pattern.
It gets larger, and then it gets smaller and then larger again. Why?
The Earth revolves around and the Sun and the Moon revolves around the Earth.
As the Moon revolves around the Earth, different parts of the Moon are in sunlight.
This causes the phases of the Moon.
There are eight major phases of the Moon you should know.
New Moon Source of Moon Pictures: Goleta Air and Space Museum,
Waxing The Moon appears to be getting larger.
Waxing Crescent Source of Moon Pictures: Goleta Air and Space Museum,
First Quarter Source of Moon Pictures: Goleta Air and Space Museum,
Gibbous Between half and full.

And the cycle begins all over again, month after month after month.
That is why we see the Moon change thru the month.

M. Sun The Moon takes 29.5 days (about one month) to complete its revolution around the Earth. The reason we see the moon is because sunlight reflects.
You can not see a new moon in the sky at night.
© A. Weinberg SOL 3.8 By Ms. Weinberg. © A. Weinberg When you look up in our night sky, you will see the moon! The way that the moon looks changes during.
Why Do We Have Phases of the Moon? Good question! Oh, by the way, what’s a phase?
© A. Weinberg. When you look up in our night sky, you will see the moon! The way that the moon looks changes during the month. We say that the phases.
The Lunar Cycle. Why does the moon have phases? The revolution of the Moon around the Earth causes the Moon to appear to have phases. The Lunar Cycle.
Moon Phases in Depth. Phase 1 - New Moon - The side of the moon that is facing the Earth is not lit up by the sun. At this time the moon is not visible.
Moon Phases. Student Objective Relate the earths movement and the moons orbit to the observed clinical phases of the moon.
Phases of the Moon Lee Farrar. Know the Vocabulary Waxing: Growing larger Waning: Becoming Smaller Half Moon or Quarter Moon: Looks like ½ a circle.
Moon Phases Chapter 2 Section 3. Moonlight Moonlight is really light from the Sun reflected by the Moon’s surface. Areas that sunlight does not reach.
Waxing & Waning Does this represent waxing or waning?
Phases of the Moon Grade 8; GLE 41 Phase 1 New Moon The side of the moon that is facing the Earth is not lit up by the sun. At this time the moon is.
1 PHASES OF THE MOON STUDY GUIDE. 2 3 What moon phase? waxing crescent.
The Phases of the Moon Moon - Earth Relationship The revolution of the Moon around the Earth makes the Moon appear as if it is changing shape in the.
Moon Phases. Exactly one half of the moon is normally lit by the sun. As the moon orbits Earth we see different amounts of the half that is lit by.
Seconds Left: What causes the phases of the moon?
Moon Phases Puzzles. Name and describe all the Moon phases New Moon: Not visible Waxing crescent: Getting bigger, crescent 1 st quarter: Getting bigger,
Lunar Phases. Motions of the Moon The moon moves in two ways just like the Earth: It ROTATES on its axis It REVOLVES around Earth because of Earth’s gravitational.
Moon Phases. Half of the Moon is always lit up by the sun. As the Moon orbits the Earth, we see different parts of the lighted area.

Phases of the Moon The Moon and Sun are in synchronous rotation- that means both rotate at the same rate. So the same side faces the Earth at all times.
THE LUNAR CYCLE. The Lunar Cycle The moon orbits (revolution) around the Earth Takes about 28 days (one month) Causes the phases of the moon that we see.
Phases of the Moon Standard 1 Students will understand that the appearance of the moon changes in a predictable cycle as it orbits Earth and as Earth rotates.
Mr. Stanish’s Class. HALF OF THE MOON IS ALWAYS LIT UP BY THE SUN. AS THE MOON ORBITS THE EARTH, WE SEE DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE LIGHTED AREA.
New moon Full Moon Waxing Crescent 1st Quarter 3 rd Quarter Waning Gibbous Waning Crescent Waxing Crescent.
Waxing vs. Waning of the Moon. What does “waxing” mean? Waxing means an INCREASE When the moon is waxing, the lighted surface of the moon is increasing.
Moon Phases. Rules of Moon Phases The moon has 8 phases. The moon has phases because it revolves around the Earth As the moon moves, the amount.
Phases of the Moon. The moon revolves around the Earth and rotates on its axis approximately every 29.5 days.
Different Phases of the Moon. What will we learn? We will learn about moon phases How many moons we have compared to other planets Why we have moon phases.
Phases of the Moon. Sun Lighted Side Dark Side Moon Earth Day Night Moon’s Orbit Earth–Moon Relationship The Moon revolves around the Earth every 29 ½.
Crescent Moon Seen as less than half lit Cardinal directions North, South, East, West Axis Imaginary line of spin.
THE MOON. From any location on the Earth, the Moon appears to be a circular disk which, at any specific time, is illuminated to some degree by direct.
How does the moon change phases? What causes the phases of the moon? What are the 8 names of the phases of the moon? Since the moon does not produce light,

The Moon and its Phases. The Phases of the Moon The Moon is unique in that it has phases, that is it is not always round. It “waxes” (gets larger) and.
The Moon By: Cammie Goodman. Facing up to the Moon The moon orbits the Earth. It takes about a month for the moon to complete its orbit. Its orbit.
Moon Phases No, the moon is not made of cheese!. The Rules 1.The LINE-where the dark meets the light. The LINE always moves LEFT. 2.We name the phase.

The word "month" comes from “Moon.” Long ago, a month represented the time it took to complete one cycle of the changing Moon phases (~ 29.5 days).
Phases of the Moon. The Moon The moon is the Earth’s only natural satellite. It is the second brightest object in the sky after the sun. It is reflection.
Moon Phases 6.E.1.1 Explain how the relative motion and relative position of the sun, Earth and moon affect the seasons, tides, phases of the moon, and.
The Moon’s Shape The Moon seems to change shape. It doesn’t. The change is how much of the Moon you can see.
It takes 29.5 days for the Moon to revolve around the Earth and we always see that same side of the moon. (we never see the back side) INTRODUCTION.
