Moon Phases

By: Cindy Lam

First and third quarter smiliarities and differences

The differences between the first and third quarter is that the first quarter is on the waxing side and the light is on the right. For the third quarter, it is on the wanning side and the light is on the left. They both have half of their moon lit in the moon phases.

Perspective on earth and in outer space

When the astronauts from ISS{International Space Station}are actually out there in space, they can see the entire moon that means they have several spots where they can recieve different perspectives. When we are on our planet, Earth, we can only see the part of the moon that is lit because we are only in one area which means one perspective.
