The Moon's role

The moon phases are the different shapes of the moon you see from Earth. There are eight phases new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, and waning crescent . Tides, are the rise and fall of ocean water that occurs every 12.5 hours or so. There are low and high tides. And also there is a spring tide and a neap tide. Eclipse, when an object in space comes between the sun and a third object, it cast a shadow on that object, causing it. There are two eclipses solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse.

We have eight different moon phases. We get them by the sun's reflections of the moon. It affects Earth cause humans here use it asa source sometimes. And may affect the rotation slowing down.

There are two types of tides there are Spring tides and Neap tides, also known as low and high tides. The moon attracts the water on earth and where ever the moon is at there is a spring tide. And the other side where the moon is not at there is a heap tide. The tides only occur twice a month.

There are two different kinds of eclipses there is a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs at a new moon when the moon is between earth and the sun. A lunar eclipse occurs at a full  moon when earth is between the sun and the moon. Eclipses don't take place every month.

The moon is important to us because without the moon the water tides wouldn't change. Also the moon's gravity affects the climate like slowing down the Earth's rotation. Without the moon the world would be a mess.
