MOON FROM EARTH HOW WE SEE THE MOON
PHASES FROM EARTH WHY DOES THE MOON HAVE
DIFFERENT PHASES ? Phases Of The Moon There are eight phases of the moon as seen from earth and every 29.5305882 days the cycle of phases repeats its self. The earth is in constant motion around the sun and at the same time the moon is orbiting the earth. These motions cause the angles between the sun, earth and moon to constantly change and this causes the phases of the moon to occur. The sun illuminates only one half of the moon while the other half is always in darkness. The cycle begins with the new moon. The new moon occurs when the moon is between the earth and the sun and the illuminated side of the moon is facing away from the earth so no moon is seen in the night sky. The new moon occurs when the moon is between the earth and the sun and the illuminated side of the moon is facing away from the earth so no moon is seen in the night sky. 1st Phase 2nd Phase The waxing crescent phase occurs as the moon travels on its orbit and more and more of the illuminated side becomes visible from earth. The word waxing means to increase over time. The first quarter phase occurs when the sun, earth and moon are at right angles to one another. The cycle is now one quarter complete. From earth we see a half moon! 3rd Phase The waxing gibbous phase occurs as the moon continues its orbit around earth and even more of the illuminated side becomes visible. This phase lasts for about one week until the sun, earth and moon are in a straight line again. 4th Phase 5th Phase The full moon phase is the halfway point in the cycle. From earth we see all of the illuminated side of the moon. 6th Phase The waning gibbous phase occurs as the moon continues to orbit the earth and the illuminated side of the moon begins to decrease. The word waning means to decrease over time. 7th Phase The third quarter occurs when the sun, earth and moon are again at right angles to one another. The cycle is now three quarters complete. From earth we see a half moon! 8th Phase The waning crescent phase occurs as the moon continues to orbit the earth and we see less and less of the illuminated side. This phase lasts for about one week until the sun, moon and earth are in line again and a new moon is born. There are eight phases of the moon as seen from earth and every 29.5305882 days the cycle of phases repeats its self. The earth is in constant motion around the sun and at the same time the moon is orbiting the earth. These motions cause the angles between the sun, earth and moon to constantly change and this causes the phases of the moon to occur. The sun illuminates only one half of the moon while the other half is always in darkness. The cycle begins with the new moon. WHAT PART DOES THE MOON
PLAY IN ABORIGINAL CULTURE? The moon plays a significant role in the Australian Aboriginal culture with its 29.5-day cycle it is nature’s natural clock. It controls the waters, dictates the tides and creates floods. To the Australian Aboriginal the moon is the master of death and rebirth; it brings fertility and hope of life after death. This is evident in their art and myths. Many aboriginal myths depict a male Moon and a female sun one such myth tells of Moon-man falling ill (the waning Moon), lying dead (New Moon), and then reborn on the third day (waxing Moon). http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/p480x480/72382_510664535639651_1719324389_n.jpg THE END or is it the beginnning http://www.mukmuk.com/media/pics/site/imagecache/D/C/DC8440EEBA12BFE189C224AEA527931D.jpg Barrow, M., The Phases of the Moon, Woodlands Junior School,
