we see the mood phases according to the sunlight flashed on the moon and it varies to its position, and how it rotates and revolves around the earth.

The moon phases between the quarter and full moons are called "gibbous".

moon phases are all the eclipse and all that stuff.The moons phases are all the types of phases.

The Moons phases are caused by the sun, not its positions

you use the moons movement and phases to tell time because of the seasons, rotation, and revolution

The moons reflection from the Sun's light. The light hits the Earth so the viewer can see the moon.

He realized the planets have moons and phases on those moons, if the earth was at the center that couldn't happen.

"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.

Galileo discovered the moons of Jupiter, phases of Venus, sunspots, and many other astronomical things.

This is incorrect; an observer in space WOULD see the "phases of the Moon", and he would also see the "phases of the Earth". Here on Earth, with a good enough telescope, we can see partial "phases of Venus" and "phases of Jupiter" and of Saturn. From Ganymede, an observer would see "phases of Jupiter" what would similar to - although vastly more impressive! - than the phases of the Moon that we see from Earth. However, it wouldn't be the SAME phases that we see from here on Earth.

Well yes and no. The phases of the moon were understood well before Galileo --- however Galileo discovered the moons of Jupiter and no doubt their associated phases --- as well as the phases of Venus.

No. For a start, there are phases. Also, we see slightly different parts of the Moons surface (for a total of about 60% of the surface), due to movements called "libration".

All of them. But from Earth, we would only see those phases on Mercury and Venus.All of them. But from Earth, we would only see those phases on Mercury and Venus.All of them.
