Moon phases

By Ashley Stuffel

Waxing crescent

Looks like the end of a finger nail

Waxing gibbous

A little more than a first quarter

Full moon

You can see the whole moon

Waning gibbous

Comes after the full moon

First quarter moon

A half of the moon

Last quarter

The same as first but opposite sides

Waning crescent

The last phase before new moon


The moon is 384,400 km away from earth

Only 12 people have been on the moon

The earth has its own time zones

The part of the sun that shines on the moon is very hot and the part that is not reciveing sun is very cold

The first moon landing was in 1959
