The Moon goes through 8 phases in a cycle: new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, and waning crescent. Each phase of the Moon is named after the amount of light it reflects to the Earth. The Moon's cycle takes about 29.5 days to complete one cycle.

The moon is actually moving away from the Earth at a rate of 3.8 cm every year. During a lunar eclipse, the moon turns a deep red color due to the Earth's atmosphere. There is a small amount of water vapor on the moon, which is why it looks brighter during a full moon.

In pairs: Select and solve one of the tasks: A. Draw a picture of the moon's orbit around the Earth and explain how it relates to the phases of the moon. B. Explain the relationship between the moon's position and the amount of light seen from Earth.
