    A. FIRST-QUARTER
    Explanation
    The first-quarter phase of the moon occurs when the moon is halfway between a new moon and a full moon. During this phase, the moon appears as a half-circle shape, with the right side illuminated. This phase marks the beginning of the waxing (growing) phase of the moon's cycle. It is called the first-quarter because it is the first quarter of the moon's journey from new moon to full moon.

    C. Mercury
    Explanation
    Mercury is the correct answer because it is the nearest planet to the Sun. Being the closest planet, it has an average distance of about 36 million miles from the Sun. This proximity to the Sun also means that Mercury has a very short year, taking only about 88 Earth days to complete one orbit around the Sun. Additionally, Mercury has extreme temperature variations due to its close proximity to the Sun, with temperatures reaching up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and dropping to -290 degrees Fahrenheit at night.

    There are 4 stages to meteoroids.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "There are 4 stages to meteoroids" is false. Meteoroids do not have stages. A meteoroid is a small rocky or metallic object that travels through space. When it enters the Earth's atmosphere, it becomes a meteor and produces a streak of light in the sky. If it survives the journey through the atmosphere and lands on Earth's surface, it is called a meteorite. Therefore, there are only three stages associated with meteoroids: meteoroid, meteor, and meteorite.

    • C.

      A meteor is a rock from space that comes into Earth and makes a crater into Earth's ground.

    • D.

      A meteor is a rock

    Correct Answer
    B. A meteor is a rock from space that comes on Earth's atmosphere.
    Explanation
    A meteor is a rock from space that comes on Earth's atmosphere. This explanation correctly defines a meteor as a rock from space that enters Earth's atmosphere. When a meteor enters the Earth's atmosphere, it heats up and produces a streak of light known as a meteor or shooting star.

      A constellation is pictured with astronauts in them.

    Correct Answer
    C. A constellation is a group of stars that form a picture.
    Explanation
    A constellation is a group of stars that form a picture. This means that when we look at a group of stars in the night sky, we can connect the dots and see a recognizable shape or pattern. These patterns have been named and recognized by different cultures throughout history, and they help us navigate and understand the night sky. The stars in a constellation may not actually be physically close to each other, but they appear close to each other from our perspective on Earth.
