No, the earth is round, so not everyone can see the moon at the same time. Only when your side of the world is pointed toward the moon can you see it.

-- When you see the moon, people on the other side of the world can't see it at all.-- Everybody on Earth who can see the moon at any moment sees exactly thesame shape. (That's why every calendar in the world shows the Full Moon onthe same date.)

29 1/2 Earth days - same as the Moon cycle (from full moon to full moon) we see on Earth.

To be full moon, the Moon has to be opposite the Sun - that way, we see the whole of the illuminated side. The only way for the moon to be on the opposite side of earth is for it to be on the night side. Thus the full moon cannot be out during the day.

At full moon and new moon, Sun and Moon pull in the same direction (along the same axis).

i think its possible because in the other side of the world it might be full while here it might be a new moon but idk -VG

Yes. Everybody looking at the moon at the same time sees the same shape. When you think about it ... you can take the calendar or the newspaper and look up the date of the full moon. It gives the date, but it doesn't say anything about the location. Every location has the full moon on the same date.

Full moon. Earth spins much faster than the moon moves so we all see a full moon as Earth turns us to see it.

No, a full moon is full but a waxing gibbous is between half and full, and is getting bigger.

Yes and no. The full moon affects everything on the planet. The full moon affects a vampire the same it does to a regular human.

User Avatar

Nope! We always see the same side of the moon, even if it is a full moon.

a high and low tide is the same for a new moon and full moon because that is along the same axis an the same sunlight that reflects from the sun.

In a full moon, the Moon is on the other side of Earth from the Sun. In a solar eclipse, the Moon is on the SAME side of the Earth as the Sun.

No. The position the Moon has to be in for a full Moon is completely different than for a new moon. When we have a full Moon the Moon is on the opposite side of us to the Sun. When we have a new Moon, the Moon is on the same side of us as the Sun. It takes about 2 weeks for the Moon to go between those two positions, so it is not possible for it to happen on the same day.

User Avatar

Yes. However, not the entire globe all at once. After all, you can't see the sun the entire day, can you? Half of the world is dark and half light. It is the same way with the moon, but within 24 hours, the whole world will pass beneath the wondrous light!

There is a full moon every month of the year - on rare occasion, two full moons in the same month.

Not only during eclipses; in general around full moon and new moon, the tides are higher.The reason is that at full moon and new moon, Earth, Moon, and Sun are aligned - and work in the same direction, with respect to tides.Not only during eclipses; in general around full moon and new moon, the tides are higher.The reason is that at full moon and new moon, Earth, Moon, and Sun are aligned - and work in the same direction, with respect to tides.Not only during eclipses; in general around full moon and new moon, the tides are higher.The reason is that at full moon and new moon, Earth, Moon, and Sun are aligned - and work in the same direction, with respect to tides.Not only during eclipses; in general around full moon and new moon, the tides are higher.The reason is that at full moon and new moon, Earth, Moon, and Sun are aligned - and work in the same direction, with respect to tides.

The second full moon in a month is called a "blue moon."

User Avatar

The moon is the same phase no matter where on Earth you are looking from.

User Avatar

The moon is the same size full moon half moon and quarter moon. The different sizes comes from how much you can see at one time.

User Avatar

No. A full moon occurs when the side of the moon facing Earth is fully illuminated by the sun. A lunar eclipse sometimes occurs during the full moon when Earth casts a shadow on the moon.

User Avatar

No. It refers to a second full moon in the same month.

It's the same moon as always, but it's Full.
