                    Hello guys, I have written much about science topics, but I am still getting 3 stars, however I have got 4 stars too on my some blogs but It's my wish to get at least one 5 stars blog and I know it's very difficult. I am trying my best to make the perfect blog every time but mam Hillary always said that my tags very poor even I choose them with the help of suggested by Jean-beltran. I have still not got her point, what I have to do to make it perfect.
I am again here with my new topic, which belongs to "Rotation and Revolution of the Earth & Phases of The Moon".

"The Earth"

The Earth is a planet. Its shape is like a ball. We call this shape a sphere. The Earth is more than one million times smaller than the sun.

"Rotation of the Earth"

The Earth spins round and round on its own axis. This spin is called the rotation of Earth. It completes one rotation each day. It spins from east to west.


“The top rotates on its pin (axis). This type of movement is called the rotation”.

                                Earth’s axis is an imaginary line around which it moves. This axis is not perpendicular but tilted. When our side of the Earth is facing the Sun, we have a day. When our side of the Earth is facing away from the Sun, we have a night; the path Earth takes to move around the Sun is called its orbit.

“The Earth’s rotation causes day and night.”

"Revolution of the Earth"

             The picture of the Earth shows that it is tilted on its axis. It is always tilted in the same direction.

                                   Our Earth also moves around the Sun. It is called a revolution. Earth completes one revolution around the Sun in one year. The tilt of the Earth and its revolution around the Sun cause the Seasons to change.

"The Moon"

                    The Moon is the natural satellite of our Earth. It is round like the Earth. But it is 50 times smaller than the Earth. It is approximately 384,000 Kilometers away from the Earth. It moves around the Earth. From the Earth, we always see the same side of the Moon.

          Like the Earth, the Moon has no light of its own. But, there is no life on the Moon because there is no air on it.

“Neil Armstrong was the first man to step on the surface of the Moon”.

                       The spots on the moon are craters. There are thousands of big craters on its surface. The bright part of the Moon is the part that the Sun is shining on. This is like daytime on Earth. The dark part is in shadow, like a night on Earth.

"Phases of The Moon"

                We see the different shapes of the Moon during a month, e.g. Crescent, Half Moon, and Full Moon. For some time we see no Moon. These different shapes of the Moon are called the phases of the Moon.

"No Moon"

                      On the no Moon night, the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun but they are not in the same line. The Moon’s dark side faces the Earth that’s why we can’t see the Moon even the moon is still there in the darkness.


                      On the Crescent night, we see only a part of the Moon’s lighted face. Then it is called a crescent. On the Crescent night, the moon is between the Earth and the Sun, but they are not in the same line, and a part of the moon is facing the Earth and the Sun that’s we only see the part of the moon which is refluxing the Sun’s light.

"Half Moon"

                   On the half Moon night, the Moon is at such an angle that we see only the half-lighted face of the Moon. On the half Moon night, only the Moon’s half part refluxing the Sun’s light, that’s why we can only see the half part of the Moon.

"Full Moon"

                      On the Full Moon night, the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon. But they are not in the same line. The Moon’s lighted side faces the Earth that’s why we see the moon like full moon.

So, I hope you like my all blogs about the interesting science topics, I hope I can write more for bitlanders, but as you all know that I am not getting pretty scores here so this is disappointing and discouraging me to write more. I need some courage and motivation to write something more here, I am preparing myself to write more interesting topics. Well, let’s see what I can make with myself.

Will meet you all soon in my next blog, till then stay safe and happy always. Happy blogging friends.
