Chapter 1 Day and Night
Have you ever wondered what makes day and night? We have day and night because earth rotates on its axis. When we rotate, we spin. Because we are spinning, the light of the sun hits different areas. When we are facing the sun, it is day. When we are facing away from the sun, it is night.

We live in the USA. For us, the sun rises in the east, the side Florida is on. The sun sets in the west, the side California is on. Based on the way earth is spinning around the sun, we have seasons. In the spring and fall, there are about 10-12 hours of sunlight. However, in the winter, there are only 8 - 8 and a half hours of sunlight. But in the summer there are almost 14 hours of light! This is caused by the tilt of the earth and its orbit.

Chapter 2: The Moon
Why does the moon seem to change shape?
The moon seems to change shape because it is an orb. It can only have a little bit of light on it at a time. This creates the moon phases.

The moon phases are, in this order: New Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Third Quarter, Waning Crescent, and New Moon again.

How many days does it take to complete the moon cycle?
It takes about 28-30 days to complete the moon cycle. Since it takes about a month for the cycle to be finished, people call it the lunar month.
