The moon does not actually produce its own light
It reflects light from the sun
The Moon
• Moon phases are the portion of the lit moon as seen from
Earth.
• Moon phases are caused by the Sun, Earth, and Moon being
in different positions relative to each other.
• As we look out from Earth, we can only see certain parts of
the lit moon.
• SHADE IN THE SHADE!
