  1. As the Moon Changes NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  2. The revolution of the Moon around the Earth causes the Moon to appear to have phases. Why does the moon have phases? NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  3. New Moon Waxing Crescent First Quarter or Half Moon Waxing Gibbous Full Moon Waning Gibbous Last Quarter or Half Moon Waning Crescent 8 Phases of the Moon NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  4. The moon is not visible from Earth. The moon is between the Sun and the Earth. • The dark side is facing us. • This phase lasts one night. New Moon NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  5. Waxing means that the bright side is increasing. The right side is the bright side. • Less than one half of the moon is illuminated. • This phase includes any visible moon from a small sliver to almost half. Waxing Crescent NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  6. The entire right side of the moon is illuminated. • The moon looks like a half circle. • The illuminated side is increasing. • This phase only lasts one night. First Quarter or Half Moon NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  7. Gibbous means that more than one half is visible, but it is not quite full. • This phase includes the night after the first quarter to the night before the full moon. Waxing Gibbous NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  8. The moon is full and bright. It looks like a large circle. • The illuminated side is facing us. • Only happens one night per lunation. Full Moon NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  9. The moon appears more than half but not quite full. • Waning means that the illuminated side is decreasing. • The left side is the bright side. Waning Gibbous NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  10. Left Half of the moon is illuminated. • The illuminated side is decreasing. • This phase also only lasts for one night. Last Quarter or Half Moon NSF North Mississippi GK-8

  11. Less than one half of the moon is illuminated. • The moon will continue to become smaller and smaller. Waning Crescent NSF North Mississippi GK-8
