Moon Dance 4: Developing Alternative Perspectives for Phases of the Moon and Applications


  • What do you see here on earth? For each phase, draw a stick figure showing one arm pointing to the sun and one arm pointing to the moon.
  • What would you see if you were to look down upon the sun, earth, and moon from way above the solar system? For each phase, draw the arrangement we have inferred for the sun, earth, and moon with their relative sizes and distances from one another. Represent the shape of the moon as it would appear to someone looking down on the sun/earth/moon system from above.
