4th hour

The moon has phases, tides, and eclipses .there are eight phases. There are two types of eclipses.

there are eight phases. Half the moon is almost always in sunlight. The phase of the moon you see depends on how much of the sunlit side of the moon faces earth. During the new moon phase, the side of the moon facing earth is not lit up. Phases happen when different parts of the moon are lit up.



there are different types of eclipses. There is a solar eclipse, and lunar eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly between earth and the sun blocking sunlight from earth. The darkest part of the moons shadow is the umbra. The largest part is the penumbra. A lunar eclipse occurs at a full moon. Eclipses occur when part of moons blocked and there is a shadow.


tides are the rise and fall of ocean water that occurs every 12.5 hours or so. Tides are caused by the gravity pulling the moon and earth including water on earths surface toward each other .


the moon is important because without the moon you wouldn't be able to see at night. Lie without the moon would be horrible. You wouldn't be able to see in the dark there would be no light at night .
