Of course, Francine! I heard there was going to be a spring tide.
Hello, Grandpa Joe. Wanna go see the tides today?
So, spring tides are when the sun and moon align and both pull on the Earth using their gravity and the high and low tides are drastically different?
Yes! But when the sun, moon and Earth line up to make right angle, the moon and sun's gravity counteract by pulling on different points of the Earth. hen the high and low tides are very similar.
Well Francine, tides are the rise and fall of sea levels that are caused by the moon and sun's gravity.
Grandpa Joe, what are tides exactly?
I remember learning in school that because the Earth rotates, there are two high tides and two low tides in one place that happen everyday.
The moon has more control over the tides than the sun because it has a stronger gravity pull on the Earth.
That is very interesting. You know so much about tides, Grandpa.
Any time, Francine. And this water is amazing!
I had a great time learning about tides with you Grandpa Joe! Thank you.
