Phases Of The Moon - Phases of the Moon album download
Half of the Moon’s surface is always illuminated by sunlight. However, just how much of that light we can see from our point of view on Earth varies every day and this is what we refer to as a Moon phase. Different phases of the Moon. Illustration showing the visible Moon phases based on images from NASA. Sun Lights Up the Moon. The Moon does not radiate its own light, but the Moon's surface reflects the Sun’s rays. Primary and Intermediate Phases. In Western Culture, we divide the lunar month into 4 primary and 4 intermediate Moon phases.
Phases of the Moon facts for kids. Kids Encyclopedia Facts. The phases of the Moon are the different ways the Moon looks from Earth over about a month. As the Moon orbits around the Earth, the half of the Moon that faces the Sun will be lit up. The different shapes of the lit portion of the Moon that can be seen from Earth are known as phases of the Moon. Each phase repeats itself every 2. days.
The center ring shows the Moon as it revolves around the Earth, as seen from above the north pole. Sunlight illuminates half the Earth and half the Moon at all times. But as the Moon orbits around the Earth, at some points in its orbit the sunlit part of the Moon can be seen from the Earth, and at other points, we can only see the parts of the Moon that are in shadow. The outer ring shows what we see on the Earth during each corresponding part of the Moon's orbit.
The lunar phase or phase of the Moon is the shape of the directly sunlit portion of the Moon as viewed from Earth. The lunar phases gradually and cyclically change over the period of a synodic month (about 2. 3 days), as the orbital positions of the Moon around Earth and of Earth around the Sun shift. The Moon's rotation is tidally locked by Earth's gravity; therefore, most of the same lunar side always faces Earth
The phases of the Moon are the different ways the Moon looks from Earth over about a month. The same half of the Moon always faces the Earth, because of tidal locking. So the phases will always occur over the same half of the Moon's surface.
The cyclical phases of the Moon are actually different angulated views of the Moon created by the relative positions of the Sun, Earth, and Moon. At any one point of time, the Moon is half-lit by the Sun (of course, except during lunar eclipses when the Moon is directly behind the Earth with respect to the Sun and is completely shadowed by the Earth). However, as the Sun, Earth, and Moon periodically move and orbit through space, the portion we see illuminated on the Moon changes.
This image shows the phases of the Moon and why they happen. The center ring shows the Moon as it orbits around the Earth, as seen from above the north pole. But as the Moon orbits around the Earth, at some points in its orbit the sunlit part of the Moon can be seen from the Earth. At other points, we can only see the parts of the Moon that are in shadow. Waning Gibbous: After the glorious appearance of Full Moon, the lunar shape starts to wane, meaning it gets smaller. It's visible later at night and into the early morning, and we see a steadily shrinking shape of the lunar surface that's being lit up. The side that is lit up is facing toward the Sun, in this case, the sunrise direction. During this phase, look for the Moon during the day - it should be in the sky in the morning.
