The moon is very important to us. We have eight moon phases. We have heap and spring tides. We also have solar and lunar eclipses. All of these thing are causes by the moon.

We have eight different moon phases. There is new moon, waxing crescent, 1st quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, 3rd quarter, and waning crescent. Whenever there is a new moon, we don't have any natural light. When there is a full moon, we have a lot of natural light. That is why the phases are so important.

Tides are the rise or fall of ocean water about every 12.5 hours. There is neap and spring tides. They are high and low tides. They are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon. High tides happen twice a day and so do neap tides.

There are several types of eclipses, but the two main are solar and lunar. Solar eclipses are when the moon goes over the sun. Lunar eclipses are she it passes through he light. They block the sun by aligning with the sun and moon. The lunar eclipse makes the moon look red.

The moon is very important to us. Without it the oceans would sit still. We would have no eclipses. We would also have no natural light. We need the moon and it needs us. Just kidding it doesn't really need us.
