Moon Phases and Tides

SOL 3.8

By Ms. Weinberg

slide2

When you look up in our night sky, you will see the moon! The way that the moon looks changes during the month. We say that the phases of the moon are a cycle in nature.

slide5

The moon does not make any light of its own. The lighted parts that we see are called phases.

The moon reflects light from the sun.

slide6

As the moon moves (revolves)around the Earth, it looks like it has different shapes. The shape of the moon does not really change. It just changes its location in space.

slide7

Let’s take a closer look at the phases of the moon.

During a new moon, the moon looks dark.

slide8

As the surface of the moon that we see gets bigger, we say that the moon is waxing.

This is a waxing crescent.

slide9

When the moon is ¼ of the way around the earth, it is in its first quarter phase. We see it as half lit.

This is a waxing quarter moon.

slide10

After the quarter moon, the moon is moving towards a full moon. We call this a waxing gibbous moon.

Notice that the bright part of the moon is getting larger. That’s what we mean by “waxing.”

slide11

Now it’s time for a full moon. The entire face of the moon that we are able to see shines during the full moon.

slide12

Now that the moon is ¾ of the way around the Earth, it seems to be half lit. We call this a waning quarter moon.

slide13

Following the full moon, the surface of the moon seems to be getting smaller. We call this a waning moon.

This is a waning gibbous moon.

slide14

Before we get to the new moon, we see a sliver of moon shining up in the sky. This is a waning crescent.

slide15

Now we see a new moon again.

It takes the moon about 1 month (29 ½ days) to go through the phases

slide16

When it is summer in North America, we are tilted towards the rays of the hot, bright sun.

slide18

The moon affects the oceans.

The moon’s pull is called gravity.

Gravity pulls on the oceans and causes the tides.

slide20

Now you know about the moon and its phases.

**Do you remember when a moon is waxing and when it is waning?

**Do you know what causes the tides?
