Storyboard Text

  • Look at the moon. Tonight the moon is a full moon. After a day or two, the moon will start to wan or get smaller. And in a week it will be over half way gone.
  • 1 week later
  • As you can see the moon has shrunk so about 1/2 is visible.  This is because of the moon orbiting around the Earth.
  • 1 week later
  • As you can see there is no moon tonight because it is a new moon. As you may have noticed there are 7 days between each of the 4 primary phases (new moon,1st quarter, full moon, 3rd quarters).  Between those phases are 4 other phases that last more than one day. These are called Intermediate Phases. They are waxing crescent, waxing gibbous, waning gibbous, and waning crescent.
  • With this information we can predict when a certain moon phase the moon will occur.  For example to day is the 5th so in so on the 19th the moon will be a full moon (7 days for each major phase and because it is the 2nd from now we just add 14 days to today's date.)
  • 2 weeks later
  • see our prediction was correct! It is the Full moon!
  • What moon phase is it in your city? When will the moon be a full moon again? See you soon!
