Project: Moon observations

Tier: 2

Location: home

Other information, requirements, or equipment you must supply (may be blank): Blank Notebook Form (pdf)

Observe the moon at 4 noticeably different phases. Note the time of the observation, the location of the moon, and differences in appearance other than the obvious shape. You may want to use the observer's notebook form for each observation. Write a 1/2 to 1 page report on how the phase changes over several days, and how the Moon's visibility changes, including things like how hard it is to see and what time it can be seen.
