This storyboard does not have a description.
Look, it's a full moon tonight!
Where does the moon go when you can't see it?
The moon doesn't go anywhere.
The part of the moon you can see is caused by the light reflecting from the sun.
When the full moon is visible, the moon is directly opposite of the sun.
Does that mean that the new moon is when the moon is covered in shadow?
Yes, that's right.
Lastly, when the moon is less than half lit, it is called a cresent and when it is more than halfway lit, it is called a gibbous. Waxing means growing and waning means fading.
