Radhika enjoys sky watching in night. She saw a full moon in sky on 15th August. After 15 days she realized that it was the new moon. What would be shape of the moon on 15 September?
The revolution of the Moon around the Earth makes the Moon appear as if it is changing shape in the sky. From Earth we see the Moon grow from a thin crescent to a full disk (or full moon) and then shrink back to a thin crescent again before vanishing for a few days.
The phases of the Moon depend on its position in relation to the Sun and Earth. As the Moon makes its way around the Earth, we see the bright parts of the Moon's surface at different angles. These are called 'phases' of the Moon.
It takes our Moon about 29.5 days to completely cycle through all eight phases.
Thats why the moon shape will be same after a month.
