  1. The Tides & Eclipses MCAS Bootcamp:

  2. The Tides • Caused mostly by the moon (but also the sun). • Moon’s gravitydraws ocean water toward it. • High tide is always the two parts of the world lined up straight with the moon. • Low tide occurs in the two spots between. • It takes ~6 hours to change from high tide to low tide. • When the sun and moon line up, tides become especially strong (spring tide) • When the sun and moon work against each other, tides are much weaker. (neap tide)
