Note about the MOON PROJECT:
Right now students should be working on their moon projects outside of school. The project is due 10/10. It was assigned 9/28 (the third day of school). The big question students ask is "Why can't I see the moon?" Please make sure when you are going out to observe the moon that it should actually be out. Check the time chart I provided in the packet for rise and set times. If you are not out in that window of time, then there is no chance you will see the moon. Also, please do not try to stay up super late, you could always get up in the morning to observe the moon. Lastly, it has been quite cloudy. If it is too cloudy to see the moon and you are down to your last few observations, you can still do an observation, but you need to note in the observations section that it was too cloudy to see the moon. You also wont have a direction or distance above the horizon, and for the picture of the moon just draw an X over it. Hope this little bit of information is helpful!
