1. What effect does time have on moon phases? MOON PHASES
Clues: For as many days as possible, make observations of the Moon as often as possible. Record the date and time of each observation as well as diagrams showing the appearance of the Moon. Photos would provide more accurate data for comparisons.
2. What effect does time have on the Moon’s position in the sky? MOON MOTION
Clues: Using the horizon and the ecliptic (the Moon’s apparent path across the sky), describe the position of the Moon after specific amounts of time. You can do this during the night or even during the day. Make sure that during daytime observations YOU DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN. IT COULD PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR EYES.
