Moon Phases


What causes the phases of Earth’s moon?

  • Results from it changing position relative to Earth & the sun.

  • Phase: The amount of sunlight on the side of the moon that faces Earth.


Why do we only see one side of the moon?

  • The moon’s period of rotation is the same as its period of revolution.

  • Orbit: The path that a body follows as it travels around another body in space.


8 Phases of the Moon


Moon Phases

  • Waxing: (Growing) The sunlit fraction that we see from Earth is getting larger.

  • Waning: (Shrinking) The sunlit fraction that we see from the Earth is getting smaller.
