Transcript

  • 1. The MOON & ITS PHASES
  • 2. The moon changes visible shape each night.
    Follows a predictable pattern
    The shapes are called phases
    The phases last 27 days and 8 hours
  • 3. The Phases
    Begins with NEW MOON (not visible)
    WAXING CRESCENT

  • 5. FULL MOON
    WANING GIBBOUS

  • 7. Goes back to new moon and repeats
    We all know…
    The Earth revolves around the Sun
    The moon revolves around the Earth
  • 8. When rotating…
    The moon always has the same side facing Earth
    This is because…
    It takes an equal amount of time to rotate on its axis…
  • 9. …as it does to rotate the Earth
    The phases we see are the same because of our view point from Earth
  • 10. What makes the moon visible to us?
    The Suns reflection
    The moon does NOT make its own light
  • 11. Depending on what position the moon is in…
    …it determines what phase we see
  • 12. If the moon is on the opposite side of Earth from Sun…
    …the sun reflects entire moon
  • 13. If the moon is between the Earth and Sun…
    …the sun’s light hits the moon’s side we can’t see
  • 14. All the phases
  • 15. Questions to think about
    What are all the phases?
    How long does it take for all the phases to happen?
    What makes the moon visible to us?
