Moon Phases

There are 8 phases. The 8 phases in order are new moon, waxing crescent, 1st quarter, waxing gibbons, full moon, whaning gibbons, 3rd quarter, whaning crescent and it repeats over and over. It affects the season and the day and night. We have phases to see how the moon looks.

There 4 types of tides. There are 4 types of tides are high tides, low tides, neap tides and spring tides. The tides are controlled by the movement of the moon. It affects Earth by the water going to the cities and towns.


There are two main eclipses. The 2 eclipses are lunar and solar eclipses. The solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly between Earth and the sun, blocking sunlight from Earth. The eclipses affect Earth because we don't have light.

In conclusion, these are the reasons why the moon are important. Without the moon we won't have tides. We would also not have nights. The moon also gave the Americans ideas for the phases. Also without the moon we would not get a chance to explore the moon. Also it let's us see a cool eclipse happen. Also with out the moon we would not get a chance to see at night with the bright light of the moon. These are the reasons why the moon is important to Earth.
