I am very interested to learn that the moon is not as visible as I thought. I assumed it was much more visible than I ever checked to actually see. While keeping my moon journal for the course "Looking at Learning Again", I have learned that the moon can go almost a week without being visible. Is that a consistent thing or does it vary considerably from month to month?

Message:
The moon appears to increase (waxing) at a much faster rate. Now that the moon is decreasing (waning) it doesn't seem as visible to the naked eye. As the moon changed from crescent to gibbous, I was able to see the change no matter how small. The moon was full on Saturday, it has been difficult to observe the changes. It still appears full. Is my eyesight going? Do I need to get into the eye doctor?

I needed a quick refresher on the phases of the moon and what each looked like, so, I checked out moonpage.com. It is a pretty neat sight and it's information is laid out really well.

The moon has changed in it's vibrance. The first day I
observed it, it was bright and clear. Now that it is getting larger it isn't as clear and bright.

I learned that the moon is moving towards the left and
is almost straight up in the air. It is very bright and has a blueish tint to it. The crescent is getting larger and is almost a full moon.

The moon is not made of cheese, like I thought, but is
moving toward the left. When the instructor tells you to make sure you are standing facing south it is a good idea to make sure you are.

It is interesting that the moon is moving so quickly across the sky. It must be incredible to look back at the earth. Could you make an Earth journal, and what would it look like?

The moon is an interesting object. I didn't think it would move so... much. I'm looking forward to the full moon this weekend, so that I can measure the diameter. It was sitting so high on Tuesday, May 1st. Then I checked the elevation it was nearly 90 degrees - straight up.
