Storyboard Text

  • Hi everybody! My name is Ella and I am a princess! Today I will teach you everything about moon phases!
  • If you look at the moon behind me, you will notice it is a full circle. That means that it is a full moon.
  • The next moon phase will be a waning gibbous.
  • From now on,the moon will begin to be less visible from Earth until it is completely dark.
  • Now the moon is a little bit less visible from Earth. This is the waning gibbous.
  • The moon will be a waning gibbous until it is exactly half lit up.
  • Now half of the moon is lit up. This is called a quarter moon. The correct term for this is the 3rd quarter moon.
  • If you look at the moon now, you will be able to see that it is not half anymore. It is becoming less visible from Earth each day. This is now a waning crescent.
  • The next phase is a waxing crescent, then the 1st quarter, then the waning gibbous, and then back to the full moon. Those are all of the moon phases.
  • It takes 29.53 days to go from one full moon to the next. We are half way there! Now the moon will become more visible from Earth.
  • Hope you enjoyed learning. Bye!
  • Look at the moon now. As you can see... WAIT. Where is the moon? The moon is now completely dark, which is called a new moon.
