Our Moon

 

Eclipses

There are two types of eclipses, which are lunar and solar. This website tells you a lot about the Moon’s eclipses and more. When there is an eclipse, the Corona (the suns outer atmosphere) is exposed. During a lunar eclipse, the Moon turns a coppery colour, which turns the whole sky the same colour. However during a Solar eclipse the same thing happens but the Moon stays for much longer. The eclipse only shows where the Sun is shining on it in a certain place of the world. In about every 18 or every three years an eclipse hits a part of the Earth.

Tides

When the Moon is near the Earth, it affects the tides. When it is near one side of the Earth, its gravitational force pulls that side of water and it also pushes the water on the opposing side to create a bulge causing a continuous change between the Earth’s oceans. This website tells you more about tides and the Moon’s gravitational force. Without the Moon orbiting our Earth, it would be difficult for us to evolve onto the land.  

Seasons

The Moon affect the seasons by keeping our weather level. Without the Moon, we would have really extreme weathers. We would either have really hot weather or really cold weather. This will take us out of the Goldilocks Zone. Also this would make it difficult for human life to evolve onto land due to the extreme weather, which may also result in the Earth either being watery or it ending up like Mars. Also if we didn’t have a Moon, we would most likely burn to death which will result in life not to be possible. This video will show you about the extreme weathers we may have.
