What is a satellite?

A smaller object that revolves
around a larger object.
Jupiter’s satellite
Does Earth have a natural
satellite?
The moon is Earth’s
natural Satellite.
How was the moon formed?

•Theory 1 - When the earth was forming and still
fluid, a piece of the Earth separated because o...
Does the moon
produce its own
light like a star?
No, it reflects
light from the
sun.
As the moon orbits the
Earth, the light being
reflected from the moon
will change in appearance.
The Phases of
the moon are the
nightly changes in
the moon’s
appearance .
There are eight
main phases of
the moon.
The moon goes
through ALL of its
phases every 29 ½
days.
Waxing is a term
that is used when the
lighted area of the
moon appears to be
getting larger each
night.
Waning is the term
used when the
lighted area of the
moon appears to be
getting smaller each
night.
Gibbous is the term
used when more than
half of the moon is
reflecting light.
Crescent is the
term used when less
than half of the moon
is reflecting light.
Now draw
the moon
phases!
The Moon moves
directly between the
Sun and Earth. The
Moon casts a shadow
on the Earth; only
occurs with a new
moon.

Moon are directly
lined up in the center.

White on the right, growing
bright!
White on the left, losing
light!
Memory Devices:
• Wax on – increasing light!

Memory Devices:
New Moon = Near the Sun
Full Moon = Far from Sun
Remember, YOU are on the EARTH looking
at the Moon.
This concludes our
fieldtrip to the moon!

  1. 1. What is a satellite? A smaller object that revolves around a larger object.
  2. 2. Jupiter’s satellite
  3. 3. Does Earth have a natural satellite?
  4. 4. The moon is Earth’s natural Satellite.
  5. 5. How was the moon formed? •Theory 1 - When the earth was forming and still fluid, a piece of the Earth separated because of the centrifugal force of the Earth spinning. •Theory 2 - A comet, asteroid or other space matter got pulled into the gravitational pull of the Earth and became our Moon.
  6. 6. Does the moon produce its own light like a star? No, it reflects light from the sun.
  7. 7. As the moon orbits the Earth, the light being reflected from the moon will change in appearance.
  8. 8. The Phases of the moon are the nightly changes in the moon’s appearance .
  9. 9. There are eight main phases of the moon.
  10. 10. The moon goes through ALL of its phases every 29 ½ days.
  11. 11. Waxing is a term that is used when the lighted area of the moon appears to be getting larger each night.
  12. 12. Waning is the term used when the lighted area of the moon appears to be getting smaller each night.
  13. 13. Gibbous is the term used when more than half of the moon is reflecting light.
  14. 14. Crescent is the term used when less than half of the moon is reflecting light.
  15. 15. Now draw the moon phases!
  16. 16. The Moon moves directly between the Sun and Earth. The Moon casts a shadow on the Earth; only occurs with a new moon. This does not occur with every new moon due to the moon being 10o off from the orbit of the Earth. Solar Eclipse
  17. 17. The Earth, Sun, and Moon are directly lined up in the center. The Earth casts a shadow on the Moon; only occurs with a full moon. This does not occur with every full moon due to the Moon being 10o off from the orbit of the Earth. Lunar Eclipse
  18. 18. Memory Devices: White on the right, growing bright! White on the left, losing light!
  19. 19. Memory Devices: • Wax on – increasing light! – Just as a candle wick is dipped in wax and the candle wax increases the size of the candle. • Wane off – decreasing light! • Gibbous – bulge
  20. 20. Memory Devices: New Moon = Near the Sun Full Moon = Far from Sun Remember, YOU are on the EARTH looking at the Moon.
  21. 21. This concludes our fieldtrip to the moon!
