So now that we know how we see the moon's shape change due to it's location and our own, we know where the moon has to be to see it during the day and at night. But what we also noticed about the moon, is that it seems to change color and size! We decided to focus on color first!
We read some articles on the moon's appearance, and because we know the moon isn't a light source itself, different colored light must be shining on the moon. However, the light is always coming from the Sun, so is the light reflecting off other things in the sky. We tested it with a white marker and some other random colored objects at Mrs. Brinza's house.
We saw how different colored objects reflected different colored light onto the white marker, just like different colored objects must reflect different colored light to make the whitish-greyish colored moon appear different colors! So cool! Next steps, figuring out how the moon appears to change sizes (when we know it actually doesn't).
