UCF AST2002 Sec 0004 Fall 2009 - Answers to the worksheets of homework #6. Exercise #1 This is asking about the entire surface of the Moon -- so the answer is 50% for all phases. Exercise #2 This asks for the amount of the Moon's illuminated surface that is visible from Earth. It is not asking about the illuminated surface as a whole -- which would be 50% for all phases. The ranking here is: AF(BE)CD. (B and E are the same.) Exercise #3 First identify the five phases shown. They are: A - waxing crescent B - third quarter C - first quarter D - waning gibbous E - waning crescent So if you have to start with waxing gibbous as the ranking asks, the order here is DBEAC. Exercise #4 You should do this step by step. Panel A: You should be able to identify this phase as Full Moon by the shape. It's crossing the meridian, so the time must be about midnight. Panel B: You should be able to identify this phase as New Moon by the shape. It's about to set, so the time must be about 6 p.m.
