Moon

The Moon is one of the most familiar celestial bodies in the sky that we're all accustomed to. However, you can never get bored of observing our natural satellite, as its appearance is constantly changing. The Moon can be full and new, waxing and waning, a thin crescent or a fully-illuminated disk. Once in a while, it can even become a Supermoon, or a Blood Moon! Each month's Full Moon has its own peculiar names given to it by different cultures: Wolf Moon, Strawberry Moon, Worm Moon, and so on. The Moon can also get close to bright planets in the sky which is always a spectacular sight. Here, you'll find useful tips on when it's best to observe the Moon in the sky and learn lots of fun facts about our natural satellite.
