Moon face is the face of the moon that shows up on a new moon (the side that is closest to the Earth on the face of the moon).
When the moon is full, a moon face is seen as a dark shadow in front of the full moon. As the moon sets, you can see a shadow on the new moon that is a little lighter as the moon moves out toward the Earth. The moon also can be seen in front of the new moon and a full moon, so to view a moon face you have to be on the moon facing the opposite direction. If the sun is low in the sky and the moon is high in the sky, the light from the sun is blocked from the moon’s face. You can see this on the new moon because the moon has a light that’s very close to the new moon’s face.
The moon can be seen by looking directly up at the horizon, the horizon line extending slightly farther out from the Earth. The horizon line is usually perpendicular to the direction in which the moon is moving. This alignment is known as a syzygy. On the first, third or sixth month of a year, the horizon line is also perpendicular to the moon’s motion. This alignment occurs during the lunar perigee and perigee, the closest and farthest phases in the moon’s orbit around the Earth. These phases are marked by bright areas, called perigee regions.
Moon Face and Other Lunar Phenomena
Moon faces are often described as shining in and out of view due to the tidal forces that hold the moon in place on a lunar disk. The moon often moves slightly toward or away from Earth during this period. The tidal forces that hold the Earth in place on a lunar disk are:
Tidal Acceleration = Momentum = 1g = 10-17 J / m2 = 0.6 m / s
Ebb & Flow of Water
Most water on Earth’s surface flows toward the sea at a very slow rate. This is because water has low density. When the flow slows down, the density increases and the speed of the water increases. If you go to the beach or the ocean and try to run your hands over the water, if you move your hands from one of the feet of the beach and toward the other foot, the motion of the beach or ocean is going to change. This is the same thing that happens when you see a moon face or a full moon in front of a new
