Storyboard Text

  • Billy and Sara are arguing why the moon has a light and dark side.
  • We only see the lit up part of the moon
  • No, the moon has a darkside because of the earth's shadow.
  • Before we begin, note that these models are not to scale.
  • The Moon has its phases because the Moon moves into the Earth's shadow. When we see a new moon, it is completely out of the shadow.
  • When the moon orbits the Earth, we see the different phases of the Moon depending on its position. During a full moon, t Earth is behind the Moon and sun, during a new moon, the Moon is between the Sun and Earth.
  • If the moon was in the Earth's shadow, then that would cause a lunar eclipse. Besides even when the Moon and the Earth are not perfectly in line,  we would see a full moon.
  • Now that I think of it, that makes much more sense than my idea. I should join your side. 
  • The End
