There is a relationship between the moon and the sun. The moon doesn't make its own light. We see the moon because light from the sun bounces off it back to the Earth. If the sun wasn't there we wouldn't be able to see the moon. The sun always lights up one side of the moon. The phase or shape of the moon that you see depends on the position of the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth.

This phase comes before New Moon and after Third Quarter.Less than half of the moon is lit.This phase shrinks each day.

There is a difference between a solar and lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the Moon and the Sun, and the Earth's shadow blocks the moon. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, blocking the Sun.

A difference between a solar eclipse and a partial eclipse is that during a solar eclipse th sun is completely obscured by the moon. In a partial eclipse, the sun is partially obscured by the moon.

An eclipse doen't occur every month because the Earth and Moon's orbit is always tilted five degrees, so the Earth, Moon, and the Sun are not aligned.

During Spring Tides, high tides are higher than usual and low tides are lower than usual. This happens twice a month.During Neap Tides, high tides are lower than usual and low tides are higher than usual. This happens twice a month. The phases are shown in the diagram.

Tides are the regular rise and fall of the water level along a shore. Tides are caused mainly by the pull between Earth and the Moon.

At certain times of the year the alignment of the Sun, Moon, and Earth causes what are called Spring Tides and Neap Tides.
