    1. Phases of the Moon The general locations and orientations for the phases of the moon. (7) Third Quarter (6) Waning Gibbous (8) Waning Crescent Sunlight Earth (1) New Moon (5) Full Moon Sunlight Earth spins on its axis in the same direction as the moon’s orbit. (2) Waxing Crescent (4) Waxing Gibbous (3) First Quarter

    2. Perspective & The Moon’s Face Sunlight Earth (1) New Moon Sunlight How much of the moon’s face does the person see? NEW MOON Wherever the person looks all they see is shadowed moon. What time of day is it for the observer? Noon!!

    3. Sunlight Earth Sunlight (2) Waxing Crescent Perspective & The Moon’s Face How much of the moon’s face does the person see? WAXING CRESCENT When you look up you see only a small crescent brightly lit. (Right Side) What time of day is it for the observer? 3PM!!

    4. Sunlight Earth Sunlight (3) First Quarter Perspective & The Moon’s Face Perspective & The Moon’s Face How much of the moon’s face does the person see? FIRST QUARTER When you look up you see one half of the front face of the Moon brightly lit. (Right side) What time of day is it for the observer? Sunset - 6PM!!

    5. Sunlight Earth Sunlight (4) Waxing Gibbous Perspective & The Moon’s Face How much of the moon’s face does the person see? WAXING GIBBOUS When you look up you see only a small crescent, darkly shadowed, on the left. What time of day is it for the observer? 9PM!!

    6. Sunlight Earth (5) Full Moon Sunlight Perspective & The Moon’s Face How much of the moon’s face does the person see? FULL MOON When you look up you see the entire face of the Moon brightly lit. What time of day is it for the observer? Midnight-12AM!!

    7. (6) Waning Gibbous Sunlight Earth Sunlight Perspective & The Moon’s Face How much of the moon’s face does the person see? WANING GIBBOUS When you look up you see only a small crescent, darkly shadowed, on the right. What time of day is it for the observer? 3AM!!

    8. (7) Third Quarter Sunlight Sunlight Earth Perspective & The Moon’s Face How much of the moon’s face does the person see? THIRD QUARTER When you look up you see one half of the front face of the Moon brightly lit. (Left side) What time of day is it for the observer? Sunrise - 6AM!!

    9. (8) Waning Crescent Sunlight Sunlight Earth Perspective & The Moon’s Face How much of the moon’s face does the person see? WANING CRESCENT When you look up you see only a small crescent brightly lit. (Left Side) What time of day is it for the observer? 9AM!!

    10. What phase is the moon? What time of day will this moon phase be high in the sky? (meridan) What time will this moon phase set? What time will this moon rise?

    11. What phase is the moon? What time of day will this moon phase be high in the sky? (meridan) What time will this moon phase set? What time will this moon rise?

    12. This vintage 60-kopek stamp celebrates a dramatic achievement. On the 7th of October, 1959, the Soviet "Luna 3" successfully photographed the far side of the moon giving denizens of planet Earth their first ever view of this hidden hemisphere. Lacking the digital image technology familiar now, Luna 3 took the pictures on 35mm film which was automatically developed on board. The pictures were then scanned and the signal transmitted to Earth days later in what was perhaps also the first interplanetary fax. In all, seventeen pictures were received providing enough coverage and resolution to construct a far side map and identify a few major features. Depicted on the stamp are regions dubbed the Sea of Moscow, the Soviet Mountains, the Bay of Astronauts, and the Sea of Dreams.

    13. Have you ever seen a halo around the Moon? This fairly common sight occurs when high thin clouds containing millions of tiny ice crystals cover much of the sky. Each ice crystal acts like a miniature lens. Because most of the crystals have a similar elongated hexagonal shape, light entering one crystal face and exiting through the opposing face refracts 22 degrees, which corresponds to the radius of the Moon Halo. A similar Sun Halo may be visible during the day. The picture was taken in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, USA. Exactly how ice-crystals form in clouds remains under investigation.
