All my life, every night, I have looked at the moon. It is one of those things that you do not think twice about. It is there, and always will be. A white ball in outer space. As I have been growing older, I have began wondering, why is it there? What would happen without it? Why is there only one?
In eighth grade earth science, we are learning about the moon and a lot of my questions have been answered. We are assigned to observe the moon periodically. You start to notice changes that you have never thought about. Obviously, the phases change, which has always been obvious but I never knew why. I have noticed how slightly the phases changed night to night.
I love looking at and drawing the moon. Sometimes it is frustrating when it is too cloudy to see but I got over it. I hope to continue to learn new things about the moon all of the time!
