The moons role

This paragraph will be a introduction about phases, tides, and eclipse. Phases are the different shapes of the moon you see from earth. Tides are the rise and fall of ocean water that accrues every 12.5 hours or so. Last eclipes's are an object in space comes between the sun and a third object, it casts a shadow on that object.

I will be talking about the phases of the moon, why we have phases and how they effect us here on earth. The phases of the moon are new moon, 1st quarter, waning crescent waxing crescent, 3rd quarter, waning gibbons, waxing gibbons, full moon. We have phases because when the moon rotates the earth we only see one side of it. Phases affect earth because if we didn't have phases we wouldn't have light.

I will be talking about the types of tides, why they occur, and how the effect earth. The types of tides are spring tide, and neap tide. The tides are caused by differences in how much gravity from the moon and sun pulls on different parts of Earth. The sun pulls the water on Earth's surface toward it. That is some things about tides.

This paragraph will be about the types of eclipses, why they occur, and how they affect earth. The types of eclipses are solar eclipses and liner eclipses. They occur because when an object in space comes between the sun and a third object it casts a shadow on that object causing an eclipse. They affect earth because it depends if we have light or darkness.

This paragraph will be about why the moon is important and what would life be like without the moon. The moon is important because the moon pulls a strong gravitational pull on earth. If there was no moon there would be no tides cause of the gravitational pole. The life on earth would have a darker night. We would also have less hours in a day. That is some things about why the moon is important and why would we do without it.
