A last quarter? a new moon? Using the model, when would you see a “full Earth” if you were on the Moon? When Earth comes between the Moon and the Sun, Earth’s shadow falls on the Moon, and we see an eclipse of the Moon. Where should the ball be placed to represent an eclipse of the Moon? If the Moon comes between Earth and the Sun, it casts its shadow on Earth causing an eclipse of the Sun. Where should the ball be placed to represent an eclipse of the Sun? Do not look at the Sun! FIGURE 9 Make a scale model of Earth and the Moon from the information in Table 1 about their diameters and separation.
One that landed in Canada was nearly 3 km (2 mi) in diameter. An even larger one that struck Central America about 65 million years ago will be discussed in the next section. Fortunately, such large meteorites are very rare. LIFE ON EARTH Though eight planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) orbit the Sun, only Earth seems to harbor life. Mercury is sun-scorched. The surface of Venus, where it rains sulfuric acid, has a temperature of 480°C (870°F). The planets from Jupiter outward are very cold.
This is done to show that the distance between Earth and the Sun does change. Earth is at perihelion (closest to the Sun) in early January when it is about 147 million kilometers (92 million miles) from the Sun. It is at aphelion (farthest from the Sun) in early July when the Sun is about 152 million kilometers (95 million miles) from Earth. As you can see, our distance from the Sun does not change very much. But you may wonder how the Northern Hemisphere can have winter when Earth is closest to the Sun and summer when Earth is farthest from the Sun.
