The moon phases segment from "This is Our Sky!"

The Earth-Moon visualization is shown to scale in terms of size and distance. The moon's orbit is traced with a green line to aid the viewer in following that tiny pixel. After a time, the Moon "inflates" to allow detailed visualization of its phases as it orbits Earth. The phases of the Moon are also shown from an Earthbound perspective.

"This is Our Sky!" is a general astronomy show that targets 3rd grade, with elements of interest spanning Preschool to 6th Grade. Join Luna and her friends for an exploration of the sky, seasons, moon phases, constellations, and planets.
