Lunar Month JS Model 

written by Todd Timberlake and Mario Belloni

The EJS Lunar Month JS model displays the appearance of the Moon over the course of the lunar (synodic) month. The window shows the appearance of the Moon as seen from Earth as well as the current number of days into the lunar month and the current Moon phase.  

The EJS Lunar Month JS model was developed using the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) version 5.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.  This model runs on tablets.
