The phases of the moon can be observed from any location on Earth.

Spring tides occur at the new and full phases of the Moon, while neap tides occur at the 1st and 3rd quarter phases.

The moon actually is 65 percent lit anywhere on the moon.

The phases of the moon are: New moon Waxing crescent Quarter moon Waxing gibbous Full moon Waning gibbous Third-quarter moon Waning crescent

The moon appears in different shapes throughout the month because it is in a different position between the earth and the sun. The phases occur because the sun reflects off of only part of the moon.

The gibbous phases of the Moon occur when the visible face of the Moon is more than half illuminated, but not fully illuminated.

Lunar eclipses occur during the full moon while solar eclipses occur during the new moon.

Earthshine is the faint glow on the part of the moon that is shadowed. It is best seen during the waning and waxing crescent phases of the moon.

"Spring" tides, which are a little higher than average, occur at new moons and full moons. "Neap" tides, a little lower than average, occur at the quarter moon phases.

Phases only occur when an object passes between the viewer and the sun. Objects beyond the viewer are always fully lit. Venus and Mercury have the same phases as the moon does.

all the time in a month - long cycle

Half of the Moon is always illuminated by the Sun (barring lunar eclipses). The phases result from how much of that illuminated side we can see from Earth.

No. A lunar eclipse is caused when the Moon passes through the shadow cast by the Earth; this can only occur when the Moon is full.

The only moon phase that occurs during a lunar eclipse, is a Full Moon.

the earth spins away and toward the moon so it causes it to look like the moon changes.

Higher-than-average "spring" tides occur at the new moon and full moon phases. Lower-than-average "neap" tides happen at the quarter-moon phases.

A solar eclipse can occur only at the time of New Moon. A lunar eclipse can occur only at the time of Full Moon.

because all the moon phases have to occur before the full moon and the new moon

The moon reflects the light of the sun.As the moon revolves around the earth its relative position between the earth and the sun changes, so light is reflected from different portions of the moon. This is what causes the phases.

the relative positions of Earth,moon,and sun(the phases of the moon)

Lunar phases are tightly related to both kinds of eclipse: -- A lunar eclipse can occur only at the time of Full Moon. -- A solar eclipse can occur only at the time of New Moon.

Yes. They also occur at all phases in between. In most places high and low tide each occur about twice a day.

Yes, because they are small, get bigger, and then smaller again.
