Moon Calendar 2016

As we know that their are different type of calendar which are used for different purpose so moon calendar we know about the whether and moon location and uses of the moon calendar are use for the weather information and so many other things  we will further tell about it.

Moon Phases Calendar

Moon Phases Calendar:This moon phase  calendar tool or moon calendar is an easy way to find out the lunar phase for any given month.Simply select a month and year and click go and it will show you what the moon will look like for any day that month.The internal phase calculator is very accurate,but the images are approximation.Moon calculation are based on your time as specified by the computer.it is probably easiest way to understand the moon cycle in this order:new moon and full moon ,first quarter and third quarter, and the phases in between in calendar they are use for knowing the moon direction. 




Moon phases calendar simplified

Moon phases calendar simplified:The new moon occurs when the moon is positioned between the earth and sun .The three objects are in approximation alignment.the entire illuminated portion of the moon is on the back side of the moon , the half that we cannot see . At a full moon ,the earth , moon, and sun is an approximate alignment, just as the new moon , but the moon is on the opposite side of the earth so the entire sunlit part of the moon is facing us.the shadowed portion is entirely hidden from view. the first quarter and the third quarter moon happen when the moon is at the 90 degree angle with respect to the earth and sun .so we are seeing exactly half of the moon illuminated and half in the shadow . these are the phases where we know in which direction the moon is and what is the new position occur in the calendar.
 


The moon orbit calendar

The moon orbit calendar:You may have personally observed that the moon goes through a complete moon phases cycle in about one month. That's true, but it's not exactly one month. The synodic 
period or lunation is exactly 29.5305882 days. It's the time required for the moon to move to the same position (same phase) as seen by an observer on earth.  If you were to view the moon cycling the earth from outside our solar system (the viewpoint of the stars), the time required is 27.3217 days, roughly two days less. This figure is called the sidereal period or orbital period.  Why is the synodic period different from the sidereal period? The short answer is because on earth, we are viewing the moon from a moving platform: during the moon cycle, the earth has moved approximately one month along its year-long orbit around the sun, altering our angle of view with respect to the moon, and thus altering the phase.   The earth's orbital direction is such that it lengthens the period for earthbound observers.
Although the synodic and sidereal periods are exact numbers, the moon phase can't be precisely calculated by simple division of days because the moon's motion (orbital speed and position) is affected and perturbed by various forces of different strengths. Hence, complex equations are used to determine the exact position and phase of the moon at any given point in time.
Also, looking at the diagram (and imagining it to scale), you may have wondered why, at a new moon, the moon doesn't block the sun, and at a full moon, why the earth doesn't block sunlight from reaching the moon. The reason is because the moon's orbit about the earth is about 5 degrees off from the earth-sun orbital plane.





Facts About the moon calendar

Facts About the moon calendar:There are many interesting facts about the moon and trivia that may or may not be important to you. Some interesting facts include:
  • We all know there was a man on the moon, but did you know that there is one who stayed there? Dr. Eugene Shoemaker, a Geological Surveyor, who educated the Apollo mission astronauts about craters, never made it into space himself, but it had always been one of his dreams. He was rejected as an astronaut because of medical problems. After he died, his ashes were placed on board the Lunar Prospector spacecraft on January 6, 1999, which was crashed into a crater on the moon on July 31, 1999. The mission was to discover if there was water on the moon at the time, but it also served to fulfill Dr Shoemaker's last wish.
  • When Neil Armstrong took that first historical step and said "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" it would not have occurred to anyone that the step he took in the dust of the moon was there to stay. It will be there for millions of years because there is no wind on the moon. That is, assuming the downdraft from the Command Module upon takeoff back into space didn't destroy the print. Buzz Aldrin reportedly saw the American flag, much further away, blow over during launch. Nevertheless, any footprints made by the famous astronauts undisturbed by takeoff are, in fact, there to stay.
  • When Alan Sheppard was on the moon, he hit a golf ball and drove it 2,400 feet, nearly one half a mile.
  • In a survey conducted in 1988, 13% of those surveyed believed that the moon is made of cheese.
  • The multi layer space suits worn by the astronauts to the moon weighed 180 pounds on earth, but thirty pounds on the moon due to the lower gravity.
  • How close can you get without completely running out of gas? Apollo 11 had only 20 seconds of fuel left when they landed on the moon.
  • Apollo 15 was the first mission to use a lunar rover. The top speed that was ever recorded in this 4-wheeled land vehicle was 10.56 miles per hour.
  • It is possible to have a month without a full moon. This occurs in February, but either January or March will have two moons.
  • In China, the dark shadows that are on the moon are called "the toad in the moon".
