1: The Earth, the Sun and the Moon

2: Earth in Space | There are two ways in which Earth moves through space, Rotation and Revolution.Day and night is possible in Earth do to the rotation it has around its axis. | Earth also makes a turn around the sun, this turn is called revolution. Revolution makes it possible the stations and months. A year for example, is when the earth finishes given a whole turn around the sun. | FUN FACT... The Earth actually finishes its revolution at a year and six more hours, those hours are accumulated for 4 years to add a day after the 4 years, the day is added to February!!!

3: The sun affects Earth's climate, too. It makes it possible for there to be tropical regions and polar regions. The sun's most direct sunlight hits near the equator. While near the poles, the sunlight hits in a steep angle. Making it hotter near the equator than near the poles and producing a tropical climate. Though what really makes it possible for there to be seasons is the Earth's tilted axis. If the earth's axis was straight, temperatures would remain the same year long. | A solstice is when the sun is farthest north or south of the equator. This happens twice a year. Equinoxes also happen twice a year, though it is when the earth is neither hemisphere is tilted away or towards the sun. In a equinox the noon sun is directly overhead the equator.

4: Eclipses | Solar Eclipse | During a solar eclipse the moon passes directly between the Earth and the sun blocking sunlight from Earth. Solar eclipses happen during a new moon. | There are two types of eclipses the total eclipse is when the sun is totally blocked by the object in the middle. Partially is when there is still a small space were the sun is not blocked. The shadows of the moon is what provoke this.

5: Lunar Eclipse | In a Lunar eclipse occurs when earth is directly between the sun and the moon. Lunar eclipses only happen at new moons because is when the moon is closest to Earth s shadow. | The umbra is the darkest shadow and where the sun is totally blocked, the penumbra is the largest part of the shadow and where you can still see a little of the sun.

6: Phases of the Moon

7: There are eight phases of the moon. They start with the New Moon where the sunlit faces away fro earth, the Waxing Cresent when the portion of the moon is waxing, First Quarter is when half of the moon is lighten, Waxing Gibbous is when the moon continues to wax, Full Moon is when the entire sunlit is seen from Earth, Waning Gibbous is when the portion of the moon wanes, Third Quarter is when half the moon s lighted side is seen, Waning Cresent is when the moon is again cresent

8: Surface of the Moon | The moon has three mayo features which are marias,craters and highlands. marias are the dark spots in the moon s surface craters are large round pits marked in the surface of the moon and highlands are the light-colored features in the moon.
