earth has seasons because its axis is tilted at the same angle as it revolves
Causes day and night
The path an object follows as it moves around another object
Causes seasons because earth is tilted on its axis.
Earth makes one complete revolution around the sun every 365.24 days
One complete rotation of earth on its axis every 24 hours.
The south pole recieves very little so thats why it is cold
A day when earths rotation axis is the most toward or away from the sun
A point in Earths revolution when day and night are equal lengthsof time
Revolution Rotation of the moon
every 27.3 days because of the earths gravitational pull
Because of the motion of the moon around the earth only parts of the moon is light by the sun
More of the moons near side is lit each night
Week 1 first quarter
Week 2 full moon
Less of the moons near side is lit each night.
Week 3 third quarter
Week 4 new moon
we don't experience one every month because the moons orbit is tilted
when the moon moves into earths shadow only during the full moon phrase
if you stood in a objects umbra you would see a total solar eclipse.
tides are caused by the force of the moons gravity
when objects from space crash into the moon, craters are formed. Moons craters are more than 3.5 billion years old.
right after the earth was formed, a gigantic object. the size of mars crashed into the earth. it ejected rock which formed a ring around earth and when the material in the ring cooled it clumped together and formed mars.
the large, dark flat areas on the moon formed when lava flowed up through the moons crust and became solid
light colored and older than Maria and covered with craters
far side of the moon
the moon makes one rotation in the same amount of time that it makes one revolution. The same side of the moon always faces earth and is called the near side. The side that can't be seen is called the dark side
