moon_phases_brFrom Earth the Moon looks a little different to us every night. Sometimes glowing brightly with the entire face showing, at other times a mere sliver showing, or not visible at all. These changes in the Moon’s appearance are called phases. At some stages as the Moon orbits the Earth we see more of the sunlit part, and at others we can see only what is in shadow. We always see the same side of the Moon
