Due to the illumination of the moon at different geographical standings we see different phases of the moon. Join GAIAonline.com -The Jokey
The phases are caused by the angle that the sunlight strikes the moon.
No, we see the same side of the moon as it orbits and goes through phases because the moon rotates at the same rate it orbits.
The different shapes of the moon are called phases.
The moon orbits the Earth and as it does so we see sunlight striking the moon at different angles.
As the moon travels around the Earth, different parts of it are lighted by the sun. We see various parts of the face that are being lit by the sun. Since the sun and shadow move around the moon, we see different parts of the moon face, or phases of the moon.
From earth we see the same side of the moon but depending on the position of the moon, earth, sun we see different portions of the moon- these are known as the phases of the moon.
The effect is that we see the phases of the moon here on Earth. The reason for different phases is the angle and position of the sun and moon.
because the earth spins and it changes how the moon shape is
The moon has different phases because the Sun shines on it from different angles.
no you cant because of the moon phases cause there is different types like the new moon and you cant see it.
The sun lights the moon and how much sun is on the moon depends on the sun,That iswhy you can see moon phases.
You get the phases of the moon from the Sun reflecting off the moon at different angles.
The phases of the moon are caused by the relative positions of the sun, the moon and the observer. It is possible to see phases of the moon in space depending on your position relative to the sun and the moon.
Your question makes no sense.
Because the moon is in different locations of its orbit, we see different portions of the lit up half of the moon
The moon shows phases due to its orbit around the Earth. We see these different phases because of the light of the Sun reflecting off the moon while the Earth blocks some from reaching it.
you call these stages the phases of the moon
The different phases of the moon are caused by the moon's near 28-day orbit of the earth. We see a portion of the half of the moon that's illuminated by the sun.
The moon orbits the earth, the only reason we can see the moon is because light is reflected off of it the moon only has phases because the earth is blocking some of the light from reaching it.
The moon has different phases because the Sun only reflects off of certain parts of the moon each night.
Yes. The phases of the moon aren't based on the size of the moon. Phases are based on the position of the moon in relation to the sun.
The moon has different phases that it passes through, just like we have different phases in our lifetimes.
The moon doesn't really go through phases, its just that because we are spinning around the sun, and the moon spins around us, the sun lights up different parts of the moon, which is the part we can see.
from the earth you see the moon's phases. From the moon, you see the earth's phases that are same as the moon's phases
