days The moon rises in the east and sets in the
west The moon rises and sets 50 minutes later
each day Rotation Moon turns on its axis every
27 days Same side of Moon always faces Earth

Four Basic Shapes
GIBBOUS
QUARTER

Like the earth, half of the moon is always lit by
the sun.
  • Also like the Earth, half of the moon is
    completely dark.
  • The moon does not really change, it travels
    around the Earth.
  • The different shapes that we see are different
    views of the same side of the moon.
  • Sometimes we cannot see the new moon at all!

5
New Moon
  • When the moon is in between the sun and the
    Earth, we cannot see the moon. This part of the
    moon is in the shade.
  • This is called a new moon.

6
Full Moon
  • When the Earth is in between the moon and the
    sun, we see the whole part of the moon which is
    lit up by the sun.
  • This is called a full moon.

7
Quarter Moon
  • When the moon is above or below the Earth, we can
    only see half of the lit area of the moon.
  • This is called a quarter moon.

8
Crescent Moon
  • When the moon is in between the new moon and the
    half moon, we are only able to see a little
    sliver of the lighted side of the moon.
  • This is called a crescent moon.

9
Waxing and Waning
  • New moon
  • Waxing Crescent moon
  • First Quarter moon
  • Waxing Gibbous moon
  • Full moon
  • Waning Gibbous moon
  • Third Quarter moon
  • Waning Crescent moon
  • New moon

10
  • As the moon grows larger, towards becoming a full
    moon, it is called a waxing moon.
  • Right side of moon is lit

11
  • As the moon grows smaller, away from being a full
    moon, it is called a waning moon.
  • Left side of Moon is lit
