This list contains resources related to the Moon, including lunar phases, eclipses, cratering and more.
- From UC Berkeley's "Eye on the Sky" curriculum. Students compare two objects at different distances. Students explore the concept that distance affects how we perceive the size of objects.
- From UC Berkeley's "Eye on the Sky" curriculum. This lesson provides students with a concrete model of the Sun, Earth and Moon and their interaction during a solar eclipse.
- From NASA Goddard SpaceFlight Center's SpaceMath curriculum. In this problem set, learners will compare actual versus computer track of a solar eclipse in Babylonian times to calculate the rate at which the day is lengthening over time.
- Fred Espenak's ultimate eclipse photography web site is www.MrEclipse.com. It contains photographs of both solar and lunar eclipses, as well as photographs of comets, galaxies, constellations and the night sky. It also features detailed instructions on how to photograph eclipses, eclipse observing tips, eclipse eye safety and more.
- During a total lunar eclipse, Earth's shadow on the moon often looks red. Why?
