2 Phases of the Moon Sunlight (1) New Moon (2) Waxing Crescent (3) First Quarter (4) Waxing Gibbous (5) Full Moon (6) Waning Gibbous (7) Third Quarter (8) Waning Crescent Earth The general locations and orientations for the phases of the moon. Earth spins on its axis in the same direction as the moon’s orbit.

3 Sunlight Earth (1) New Moon How much of the moon’s face does the person see? What time of day is it for the observer? Noon!! NEW MOON Wherever the person looks all they see is shadowed moon. Perspective & The Moon’s Face

4 Sunlight Earth (2) Waxing Crescent How much of the moon’s face does the person see? What time of day is it for the observer? 3PM!! WAXING CRESCENT When you look up you see only a small crescent brightly lit. (Right Side)

5 Perspective & The Moon’s Face Sunlight Earth (3) First Quarter How much of the moon’s face does the person see? What time of day is it for the observer? Sunset - 6PM!! FIRST QUARTER When you look up you see one half of the front face of the Moon brightly lit. (Right side)

6 Perspective & The Moon’s Face Sunlight Earth (4) Waxing Gibbous How much of the moon’s face does the person see? What time of day is it for the observer? 9PM!! WAXING GIBBOUS When you look up you see only a small crescent, darkly shadowed, on the left.

7 Perspective & The Moon’s Face Sunlight Earth (5) Full Moon How much of the moon’s face does the person see? What time of day is it for the observer? Midnight-12AM!! FULL MOON When you look up you see the entire face of the Moon brightly lit.

8 Perspective & The Moon’s Face Sunlight Earth (6) Waning Gibbous How much of the moon’s face does the person see? What time of day is it for the observer? 3AM!! WANING GIBBOUS When you look up you see only a small crescent, darkly shadowed, on the right.

9 Perspective & The Moon’s Face Sunlight Earth (7) Third Quarter How much of the moon’s face does the person see? THIRD QUARTER When you look up you see one half of the front face of the Moon brightly lit. (Left side) What time of day is it for the observer? Sunrise - 6AM!!

10 Perspective & The Moon’s Face Sunlight Earth (8) Waning Crescent How much of the moon’s face does the person see? WANING CRESCENT When you look up you see only a small crescent brightly lit. (Left Side) What time of day is it for the observer? 9AM!!

21 This vintage 60-kopek stamp celebrates a dramatic achievement. On the 7th of October, 1959, the Soviet "Luna 3" successfully photographed the far side of the moon giving denizens of planet Earth their first ever view of this hidden hemisphere. Lacking the digital image technology familiar now, Luna 3 took the pictures on 35mm film which was automatically developed on board. The pictures were then scanned and the signal transmitted to Earth days later in what was perhaps also the first interplanetary fax. In all, seventeen pictures were received providing enough coverage and resolution to construct a far side map and identify a few major features. Depicted on the stamp are regions dubbed the Sea of Moscow, the Soviet Mountains, the Bay of Astronauts, and the Sea of Dreams.

24 Have you ever seen a halo around the Moon? This fairly common sight occurs when high thin clouds containing millions of tiny ice crystals cover much of the sky. Each ice crystal acts like a miniature lens. Because most of the crystals have a similar elongated hexagonal shape, light entering one crystal face and exiting through the opposing face refracts 22 degrees, which corresponds to the radius of the Moon Halo. A similar Sun Halo may be visible during the day. The picture was taken in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, USA. Exactly how ice-crystals form in clouds remains under investigation.
