Why is the moon upside down? - Week 10:)

Text - What does the text tell us? Summarise
Ani and Niko have been really good friends since they were in kindergarten and they became good friends by living next to each other. Every now and then, they often camp out in the back yard. While they stare at the moon, they talk to each other about why the moon is upside down and how they're gonna travel the world when they leave school. Niko's mother was offered a job in Japan so then Niko and his mother had to move. Ani waiting so long for an email from Niko then about time she received. Niko said that the moon from Japan looks weird and that he thinks something's wrong with it. He sent Ani a photo of what the moon looked like from where Niko was. Sam told Niko about the Samoan legends of the moon. Ani and Niko wanted to know more about the moon and why it looks different from each others views. They started sending each other photos that were taken by their cameras. Niko and Ani took photos every Friday night for a month. Unfortunately both cameras didn't have a very good zoom picture. Niko thought of an idea. Instead of take a not very good photo, they could draw it.

What do the diagrams tell us?
The diagram tells us the the moon can be seen from different angles and that there isn't two separate moons. Ani discovered that Niko’s new moon was a backwards C shape and her’s was a normal C shape. Niko lives in the northern hemisphere and Ani lives in the southern. So if Niko lives in Japan which is at the , then he could see the moon from the top. If Any lives at the bottom in New Zealand, then she could see the moon from the bottom. That’s why they could see the moon differently.
