The Moon's Importance
The Moon's Role
The Moon is very important to everyone's life. It has many different phases that change almost every single day. It takes the Moon about 23.7 days to revolve around Earth. Tides, Phases, and Eclipses are some of the things that involve the Moon. About half of every month, Earth's moon outshines everything else in the night sky. Earth's only natural satellite is the Moon.
The Moon goes through a set of Phases every month. The phase that you see depends on how much of the sunlit side of the moon faces Earth. During a New Moon it is hard to see outside but during a Full Moon it is very easy to see outside. Phases are the basis of a calendar.
