The Moon varies according to its position in relation to the Earth and the Sun. We usually classify the phases of the moon based on the apparent change in the part we can see.
The lunar cycle is also called, by astrologers, astronomers and area scholars, lunation. The complete cycle takes just over 29 days to complete.
Moon phases for science
As it travels around the Earth, the Moon undergoes gradual changes. This change is divided into four main stages: New Moon, New Moon, Full Moon and New Moon.
In the New Moon, we almost can’t see the Moon, its position is with its face totally turned to Earth, making its observation impossible. In the Crescent phase, we were able to appreciate half of the satellite.
The Full Moon, as the name implies, makes it possible to view the entire satellite. During this phase we were able to admire 100% of its color and brightness. And finally, in the last quarter, the shadow of the projected moon makes it possible to see only half as well, the opposite half of the view in the Crescent.
