How does the moon affect the tides?

By Ashley Stuffel

Have you wondered...

How does the moon affect the tides? I am doing my project over the moon and tides. You will also see how long it takes till the next tide and who figured out how the moon affects the tides!

So, how does the moon affect the tides?

The moon affects the tides by the place it is at. If you look at the pictures below you will notice that on the picture shows the moons position and the high tide ( so basically the high tide follows the moon). It takes 12 hours for one high tide!
