The Moon

Full moon

A full moon is visible from around sunset to sunrise.
It rises in the east around sunset, when the sun is setting in the west.
The side of the moon facing Earth is fully illuminated by the sun. It sets early in the morning as the sun rises.

A full moon occurs when the sun and moon are close to opposite sides of the Earth. The moon moves around the Earth once a month, and only when we are directly between the sun and the moon can we see the entire half of the moon that is lit by the sun.
