Question: lets look closer at the quotfull moon configuration along with...

Question details

Lets look closer at the full moon configuration, along with eight people on Earth who may or may not be able to see the moon. In the dlagram below, the Moon is off to the left side, and sunlight is coming in from the right. We have eight Moon-watchers on Earth labeled A-H For which observer is the moon highest in the sky? (1 point) For A and E Remember that from this perspective, the Earth is rotating counter-clockwise, so think about which observers are just becoming able to see the moon, and which observers are just seeing the moon leave view entirely For which observer is the moon rising? (1 point) c For which observer is the moon setting? (1 point) G Again thinking back to the Earths rottion and what that means for each of the observers, what time would someone see the full moon rise, be at its highest, and set? To avoid issues with Daylight Saving and seasonal changes, try to describe the time of day as sunrise. noon, midnight, evening, AM hours before sunrise, etc. The fuill moon rises at. .C The full moon is highest at... E The full moon sets at.. G (3 points total) Great. Now lets do this for the other landmark phases of the moon. first quarter. third quarter, and new.

Rises at. Highest at.. Sets at... Phase New irst Quarter Full Last quarter (12 points) You may wish to draw out a diagram for each phase,like we saw for the full moon at the start of this section. Now keep in mind the order of the phases, and fil out a similar table for the other phases of the moon. Since phases like waxing crescent can apply to a range of views (from a thin sliver to almost half full, want you to use general descriptive terms. To make sure everyones using the same vocabulary, let?s stick to this guide: 6am between 6am and noon 12pm between noon and 6pm 6pm between 6pm and midnight 12am sunrise morning sunset evening midnight after midnightbetween midnight and 6am Phase Rises in... in. Waxing Crescent afternoon evening Waning Gibbous (9 points The first row has been done as an exampie. At this point you shouldnt have to draw diaerams for these. You should be able to figure them out Crescent based on where these phases occur. For example. a waxing crescent ocurs between and first quarter setups, so its rise/highest/set times shoud be between those of new and 10. s English (US) 265
