									The Phases of the Moon

  Different Faces in the Night
We can see three different
   faces of the moon:
 Full   Moon



 Quarter   Moon



 Crescent   Moon
 Like the earth, half of the
moon is always lighted by the
            sun.

 Also like the Earth, half of the moon is
  completely dark.
 The moon does not really change, it
  travels around the Earth.
 The different faces that we see are
  really different sides of the moon.
              New Moon
   When the moon is in
    between the sun
    and the Earth, we
    cannot see the
    moon. This part of
    the moon is in the
    shade.
   This is called a new
    moon.
               Full Moon
   When the Earth is in
    between the moon
    and the sun, we see
    the whole part of
    the moon which is lit
    up by the sun.
   This is called a full
    moon.
            Quarter Moon
   When the moon is
    above or below the
    Earth, we can only
    see half of the lit
    area of the moon.
   This is called a
    quarter moon.
           Crescent Moon
   When the moon is in
    between the new
    moon and the half
    moon, we are only
    able to see a little
    sliver of the lighted
    side of the moon.
   This is called a
    crescent moon.
 As  the moon grows larger,
 towards becoming a full moon,
 it is called a waxing moon.
 As the moon grows smaller,
 away from being a full moon, it
 is called a waning moon.
