L.O: the moon and its effects on the Earth students will be able to Describe

Answer the question! Moon Facts The moon is earths natural satellite. The moon revolves around Earth. The same side of the moon is always facing the Earth. As the moon makes one REVOLUTION AROUND THE EARTH, it also makes one ROTATION on its AXIS

The moon takes 29 days to complete one revolution around Earth Its the only world humans have walked on What causes the cyclical moons phases?

The counterclockwise revolution of the Moon around the Earth makes the Moon appear as if it is changing shape in the sky. The Moons phases are actually caused by the different angles from which we see the lit part of the Moon's surface. The half of the moon facing the Sun is

always lit up. The diagram below shows the Moon in various positions in its orbit around the Earth. Notice that half the Moon is always lit by the Sun. How can we determine which phase can be

seen from Earth? When determining Moon phases, first find the location where the Moon would be directly between the Earth and Sun. This begins the Lunar Cycle and is known as the New Moon phase.

Since the Moon does not give off its own light, it just reflects the light of the Sun, the phase you see when you look at the Moon depends on its location in relationship to the Sun and Earth. MOON PHASES

New Moon: the entire lit portion of the moon is facing AWAY from the earth Full Moon: The entire lit portion of the moon is facing TOWARD the earth.

The appearance of the moon at position E: Appearance of the Moon at position A:

MOON PHASES Waxing: the RIGHT portion of the moon seems to GROW. Waning: The left portion of the moon seems to SHRINK After the Full Moon occurs, the Moon

gradually becomes less lit until it arrives back at its New Moon position. Do you think celestial objects like the Earth & Moon can cast shadows? Objects like the Earth and Moon cast

shadows when they block sunlight. An eclipse: when the Moon or the Earth blocks the Sun, causing a shadow to be casted. There are two kinds of eclipses:

solar eclipse and lunar eclipse. Solar eclipse: the moon gets between the Sun and the Earth. The Moon blocks the sunlight casting a its shadow on Earth

Solar eclipses happen during the day and are only possible during the new moon phase. Lunar eclipse: the Earth is between the Sun and Moon. Earth blocks the sunlight and casts a shadow on the

moon. Lunar eclipses only happen at night, during a full moon! Tides: A tide is a rise in the Earths water levels caused by the pull of Moons gravity and the Suns

gravity. This is the same location at high tide and lowDO tide NOW: Grab the following: Laptop ESRT

Regents book (the brown boxes) Sign on to castle learning then close your laptop Copy down the stuff in purple In addition to high tide and low tide here are Spring and Neap tides Spring tides: when the Sun and Moons

gravities pull TOGETHER on Earths oceans. Spring tides have the HIGHEST HIGH TIDES and the LOWEST low TIDES. Spring tides happen at the FULL moon or the NEW moon, when the Sun and Moon pull together

Neap tides: when the Sun and Moons gravities pull at 90 degree If aThe hightides tide happened at

10:00 AM, the next are cyclical & predictable high tide

is at 10:30 PM (12 and half hours a high tide happens

every: 12.5ahours (~12 later!) hours and 30 minutes) When would the next high tide occur if the last one happened at 10:00 AM?

Diagram 1 shows the Moon in its orbit at four positions labeled A, B, C, and D. Diagram 2 shows a phase of the Moon as viewed from New York State. At which labeled Moon position would the

phase of the Moon shown in diagram 2 be observed from New York State? Label A,D , E and H the correct phases. Word box: Full Moon, New Moon, Waxing phase, Waning phase
