Video about moon phases

Why we see different moon phases.

It's because of how the moon moves around the Earth and how sunlight shines on it.

You see, the moon doesn't have its own light; it reflects light from the sun. So, as the moon moves around the Earth, different parts of it get lit up by the sun, and that's what causes the different phases.

Whether you're in the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern Hemisphere, you'll see the same phases, but they might look a bit different. It's because of something called "perspective." Imagine you and a friend are standing on opposite sides of a big round ball, like a basketball. If you both look at a dot on the ball, it will appear to be in different places depending on where you're standing, right?

What is Lunation?

"Lunation" is a term used to describe the complete cycle of phases that the Moon goes through, from one new moon to the next.

Think of a lunation like a cycle for the moon. It starts when the moon is a tiny sliver in the sky, and it ends when it's a full, round circle. Then it starts all over again. So, a lunation is just the time it takes for the moon to go through all its different shapes and come back to where it started.
