  12. What features will you see on the moon’s surface? • Craters, mountains, or seas (plains)

  13. What causes the tides? • The moon’s gravity

  14. Would you weigh more or less on the moon? • Less because the moon has less gravity than the Earth

  15. What is the order of a solar eclipse? • Earth, Moon, Sun • Or • Sun, Moon, Earth

  16. When does the moon have a reddish glow? • Lunar eclipse

  17. How did the moon form? • Maybe when an object collided with Earth creating a ball of gas and dust that formed the moon

  18. When was the moon thought to be formed? • About 4.5 billion years ago

  19. What formed the craters on the moon? • Meteoroids hitting its surface

  20. What is it called when there are two full moons in a month? • Blue Moon

  21. How long does a solar eclipse last? • About 7 ½ minutes

  22. Is there life on the moon? • No, because there is no atmosphere or water?

  23. What are the phases of the moon? • New moon • Waxing crescent • Waxing 1st qtr moon-half • Waxing gibbous • Full moon • Waning gibbous • Waning 3rd qtr moon-half • Waning crescent • New moon

  24. Who was involved in the space race? • USA versus the Soviet Union

  25. What is the moon made of? • Rock, dust and space debris

  26. What is an orbit? • A path of an object around another object

  27. Does the moon make it own light? • No, it reflects the sun’s light

  39. What holds the moon in orbit around the Earth? • Earth’s gravity

  40. Do all planets have moon? • No – Mercury and Venus doesn’t

  41. What are two movements the moon makes? • Rotation and revolution

  42. How are the rotations and revolutions of the moon and Earth different? • The moon’s rotation and revolution is about the same • The Earth rotation takes much less time than its revolution

  43. What should one never do during a solar eclipse? • Look directly at the sun

  44. What are tides? • The rising and falling of the oceans caused by the moon’s gravity
