Which of the following statements about lunar phase are true?
1. False – A full moon always rises in the east around the time the sun is setting in the west. 2. True. 3. False. The length of the lunar month is 29.53 days, so a second full moon could not occur in February. Even in a leap year, February is only 29 days. It could occur in any of the other months (minimum length 30 days). 2007 – Because of time zones, this week’s full Moon occurs over Europe on June 1st rather than May 31st.
